NOW ONLINE VIA ZOOM

We are excited to invite Sean Roy Parker to work with young creatives (from 15-25 years old) on a special environmentally-charged workshop. Sean Roy is an eco-anxious artist, educator and cook who describes himself as forever-amateur and post-capitalist skill-sharer. His work expands the lifecycle of materials, reframes civic responsibility in the climate crisis and tackles waste culture through collaborative problem-solving.

Radical Tech for Survival is a series of events that will explore ideas of radical self-sufficiency and sustainable futures in shifting perceptions of ‘technology’ in a post-capitalist world. The workshops will teach participants using methods of ‘high’ technology to harness protective networks of new knowledge alongside ‘low’ technology to reconnect with ancient wisdom.

In partnership with Near Now, Broadway’s studio for arts, design and innovation.

Future of Futures is an immersive year-long research, engagement and artistic project led by young people. Borrowing from sci-fi as well as role play and scenario planning techniques, our project will be set’ in a future version of Nottingham at the end of the 21st century, to collectively reimagine the role of culture and our gallery.
