Two Degrees 2011 aimed to reflect world events since the first festival in 2009: failed climate treaty negotiations, financial disasters and government cuts.
Protest and activism have hit the headlines, from revolutionary movements in the Middle East to London’s biggest protests for nearly ten years. And away from the mainstream media eye there is a growth of alternative and inspiring solutions to our impending climate crisis.
Sitting between art and activism, performance and protest, 2011’s festival was a chance to be part of artist led actions; tell your own revolutionary story, help eradicate an invasive species, go on a mass bingo bike ride, ask an expert about the future or exchange your own personal and political views for a free haircut.
