James Leadbitter (aka the vacuum cleaner) and Jessica Huber – J&J – have created the art of a culture of hope, a research project which confronts the catastrophes and misfortunes of the contemporary world and opposes the politics and social structures of fear with the utopian idea of a ‘Culture of Hope’. Through an open research process made up of workshops and performance provocations from a line-up of international artists, J&J ask: “How can we create a space for potential, a space for hope?”

Travelling across Europe this Autumn, J&J facilitate discussions and actions about our values, fears, hopes and collective future.

In Ghent, J&J will be leading a series of Space for Hope workshops with local community groups, before presenting Tender Provocations of Hope and Fear, a curated evening of performance provocations from an line-up of international artists in the site of an old psychiatric hospital. J&J will then return to Ghent in April 2018 to present the Archive of Hope and Fear.
