THERE'S A PLACE J28
A relay, sequential rather than simultaneous response to a temporary space on 28 days notice

What is the role of the arts in interrogating the TEMPORARY in a society that changes its political, social and environmental position sometimes in a matter of weeks, and at other times reverts to the past from fear of unexpected opportunities?
Glasses, glasses, what do you see?

This pop-up community of individuals and extended families experienced inspiring adventures: performance refreshments, games, constructions, creative walking, memorable activities on board the bus.

Suitably uniformed, we elicited help from as many onlookers as possible by smiles, appeals to the better nature of onlookers, even bribery. Though harder than herding cats, people did step up to the plate with enthusiasm.
