Special Event | May 1st
To mark International Workers’ Day Black Hole Club present work and conversations online that asks, what holds value for us in this present. Throughout April we are exploring how we can (or cannot) creatively engage in a time that is unfolding into the unfamiliar. We are in a place where we are learning, undoing and remaking. Who is there for us right now and who do we want to hear from? Do we want to start or stop, in times are marked by rolling news, tech trillionaires, isolated shopping and clapping for our carers. Come and join the conversation.
