nsw premiere – liveworks festival 2020
an epic think and do tank of tiny proportions.
tiny revolutions is a provocation to develop a climate of resistance that responds to the current social and political crisis brewing. by generating a space for play, this work aims to explore some temporary social change to help us confront the new realities of the present. from climate crisis to rapid tech advancement, minority rights to the patriarchy, tiny revolutions aims to take the overwhelming scale and anxieties of these issues and transform them into bite-sized actions that pack a societal punch.
members of the public are encouraged to submit an epic problem, via the tiny revolutions website, connect it to one of 15 global challenges and then select an intervention tactic for pvi to deploy before hitting submit.
on the receiving end of the submissions is the tiny revolutions taskforce, made up of invited artists, industry experts, activists and members of the public. each submission is set a strict 30 minute time limit for the taskforce to dig deep, debate and devise a bespoke tiny revolution to be carried out in the public domain.
tiny revolutions has been developed in response to the millennium project’s 15 global challenges. the millennium project is a global think-tank on behalf of humanity established by the united nations in 1996. comprised of futurists, researchers and policy makers, the millennium project holds the largest collection of futures research methodology in the world and formulated their findings into 15 global challenges.
tiny revolutions explores the potential for the small to make a big impact and shift our collective anxieties about the future.
