Staged at Supercrawl 2018, Christopher McLeod’s participatory art installation Project EMERGENCY asked two simple yet complex questions of 1,491 participants, “What’s the emergency? What are you concerned about?” The top three emergencies that emerged from that sample were environment, health, and safe streets. How concerned are you? And what are you willing to do about it? At Supercrawl 2019, McLeod revisits that terrain in EMERGENCY Pt2., Structures of Action. Come speak to one of our hosts, make a pledge to action, pick a colour, and stick that pledge right onto the pillar beacon. There are five levels of action for each emergency topic.
