Since 2016 we’ve been the lead delivery partner for the Borough of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk’s GAME ON project which seeks to maximise the opportunity presented by the town’s permanently sited, large scale projection infrastructure through delivery of a trilogy of interactive climate change focused artworks. Following DRAWDOWN and The Intergalactic Hanseatic League, which launches 01 October, MANIFESTO will be the third project in the series, with the public outcomes taking place March to May 2022. 

For this project, artists will work with young people to co-create a town-scale artwork showcasing a Manifesto for change, devised by the young people of the town as their response to climate change using open source software such as

We’re looking for a lead artist to create an overarching vision for the creative realisation of the Manifesto and to work with three or four other artists from the area to deliver specific aspects of that vision such as performance, projections and literary responses.
