tiny revolutions

pvi collective | 15 October – 2 November

Presented by PICA & pvi collective


An epic think and do tank of tiny proportions

tiny revolutions is a public residency-based project that responds to the current global feeling of helplessness by offering a creative response to some of the world’s major challenges.

Members of the public are invited to submit a large issue that causes them concern, and then select a playful tactic with which to respond to the challenge.

The Millennium Project has identified 15 global challenges for humanity, and we have a variety of different ways to respond and bring attention to each one.

The general public can then take part in a THINK tank session to brainstorm ways to respond to the challenges, or sign up to join an elite tactical art response unit to DO some of the actions the think tank generates.
