12-Hour Sit-in Revel

Join us in Dundee Botanic Garden for a 12-hour revel of conversation, performance, music, screenings, and workshops to re-imagine art education and unsettle systems of knowledge.

It brings together contributions from artists, activists, culture workers, educators, musicians, performers, students, thinkers, writers, and various communities in Scotland and from around the world to constitute a ‘field of possibility’ (bell hooks).
