Ok, Let’s start with the climate strikes.

Here’s some amazing stuff generously created by fine humans to help you get involved, spread the word and persuade your boss, mates, mum, grandparents, teachers, neighbours etc to join in with you.

Organisations nominate an artwork or object to put on strike, replacing it with an Art Strike poster, in support of the millions of people striking to save the planet on Friday 20th September. If you're a gallery or museum please get in touch.Get Involved in Art Strike
We know giving staff the whole day off to join the strike is a big ask. But it’s business as usual to hold a fire alarm drill every few months. We plan to co-ordinate those fire alarms on the same day, at the same time, in support of the student strikers.
This means that at 11:15 on 20th September, fire alarms will be going off across the country, together. So our leaders will be left in no doubt that we are all alarmed about the climate emergency, and demand immediate action, no matter how old we are. Join us.Sign up Your Business

Stickers are deployed to high visibility social assets (such as shared hire bicycles and ATM's) as modern equivalents to the suffragette's 1900's social emancipation campaign to deface coins - as a message applied to a single asset that gains multiple interactions.
