Open discussion
Location Auditorium (BAK)

Done with dystopia? Let go. And then let go again. Join Fossil Free Culture NL for a panel on the joy to be found in shifting the paradigm, and art as a vital necessity to imagine other possible futures. The panel is not a panel. Though there will be talking. You might even find yourself sharing words at some point. Join, discuss and let go!

“We did it. We shifted the paradigm. We rewrote the meaning of life with our living. And this is how we did it. We let go.” - Alexis PaulineGumbs
