Playful Disobedience Lab
Location: Activation programme
The artist-activist collective Fossil Free Culture NL creates disobedient art and artistic interventions to end oil and gas sponsorship of cultural institutions. They play on the edges between art, climate activism and civil disobedience. Fossil Free Culture NL uses play and humour to create ambiguities and call our attention to issues that have been accepted as normal. During the IMPAKT Festival, they will share their knowledge and strategies to effect change through play and art. In this workshop you will create your own disobedience game to take on the mission of overcoming our destructive system and creating some playful trouble.
The Playful Disobedience Lab workshop by Fossil Free Culture NL is open to 20 participants. Please fill in the sign-up form to secure your spot!
Fossil Free Culture
Fossil Free Culture NL are a collective of artists, activists, researchers and critics working at the intersection of art and climate activism. Their goal is to confront oil and gas sponsorship of public cultural institutions in the Netherlands. They are committed to eroding the fossil fuel industry’s public image and its social license to operate. Through unsolicited art performances in institutions that accept such sponsorship, they expose the ecological and social devastation that the fossil fuel industry inflicts on the planet, and lay bare the way these cultural institutions actively sanitise the reputation of companies like Royal Dutch Shell.
