Rivers of Light
In response to the climate crisis, artists Akeelah Bertram and Kevin Hickson have worked with Space2 and our groups to co-create our very own neon sculpture using recycled and repurposed materials.
This work is culminating in an evening with Space2 and the people of East Leeds, celebrating light sculpture, film projection, interactive arts activities, environmental debate, poetry performances and singing at The Old Fire Station in Gipton. You will also be able to visit our Clothing Rebellion shop!

This evening stems from Not Equal, a project we’ve been collaborating on for the last 18 months.
DIGITALLY EQUAL/EQUALLY DIGITAL? has been developed in partnership with five organisations in four different countries: University of Leeds, Space2 (UK); Espacio Nixso (Buenos Aires, Argentina); C-Innova, Bogotá (Colombia) and MediaLabMX, (Mexico City, Mexico).
The project aims to examine and technologically respond to the challenges of inequality, social justice and enablement in a moment of unprecedented change caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This event will be live streamed to our friends in South America.
