Featuring work and creative practices that use digital tools or comment on today’s complex digital relationships, the NEoN 2022 Winter Programme aims to highlight how our relationship to the digital world and online spaces reflects a myriad of social topics including freedom, censorship and gender.
All events within the programme of work are free and will take place across the city from Saturday 5 November to Saturday 17 December.
In collaboration with artists Batool Desouky and Cristina Cochior, NEoN present a call to action exhibition entitled ‘From Cloud to Crowd Poster Campaign’. This outdoor exhibition of slogans, statements and questions will be open to the public for free at Sharing Not Hoarding, Slessor Garden from Sat 5 Nov-Sat 17 Dec.
BE SEEING YOU is an exhibition based around the imagery used in a roleplaying game of the same name designed by Tanya Floaker, which explores independence, control, freedom and compliance. The exhibition is open at the Federation Gallery, Keiller Centre, Sat 5 Nov-Sat 17 Dec (Wed-Sat only) 12:00pm-4:00pm.
Drop-in and join introductory storytelling game sessions of Tanya Floaker’s BE SEEING YOU on Sat 26 Nov between 10:00am-12:00pm and 2:30pm-4:30pm at Unit 35, Keiller Centre. Play as the Prisoner, the Residents or the Administration in a strange surveillance micro-state known only as The Village. If you would like to join a game please email NEoN to book a space.
On Sat 3 Dec, join a workshop with artist Majsko Sekula and help to create campaign-style zines and posters to raise awareness for 16 Days of Activism, the global international campaign challenging violence against women and girls. Running from 10:00am-3:00pm at Unit 35, Keiller Centre, the workshop is free and family friendly.
