Important Announcement

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
 
Five Million Incidents Is Back!
 

Due to the COVID pandemic we were unable to present the Five Million Incidents programmes/projects that would have taken place until 18.04.2020, but we have been working behind the scenes to create a plan to share the projects differently.
 
We are happy to announce that these Incidents will now be presented digitally. We will soon share precise details about how you can watch, listen and participate in this novel occupation of time and space.
 
Keep visiting us for updates and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook!
