tiny revolutions

South Australian premiere
Presented by Vitalstatistix

A ‘think and do’ tank for epic issues, tiny revolutions responds to the overwhelming scale and anxieties of key global issues through quick and dirty creative resistance that is impactful and fun.

Grounded in The Millennium Project which has identified 15 global challenges – ranging across climate change, democracy, ethics, disease, technology and human rights – tiny revolutions aims to challenge understandable feelings of powerlessness and inertia through playfulness, temporality and bite-sized actions that can pack a societal punch.

Artists, other experts and the public may participate in three ways: an online submission process which invites you to select a global challenge and a tactical invention for deployment by the pvi team; a think tank where the tiny revolutions taskforce, a roundtable made up of artists, activists and members of the public, dig deep to devise bespoke tiny revolutions; and the implementation of these actions in public and private realms.

Vitalstatistix is excited to present this residency-made work with the community of Port Adelaide, well known for its political engagement and lineage. The pvi team will be joined by South Australian artists as well as locally sourced lawyers, policy experts and troublemakers.
