Pix of Anti-RBS Action, London - Fri 10 Oct 08 (2 of 2)

11-10-2008 23:02

E1. Looks & Smiles
What do a Distraught Bengal Tiger, a Sacked Financial Analyst, a Homeless Polar Bear, and a Jobless Banker all have in common? Why they're all victims of the Carbon Crunch - the conflation of Capital's toxic Carbon Addiction and it's self-made Credit Crunch. Oh, and they're also all characters in a protest drama played out at the Olympia Exhibition Centre between some radical smart cookies from...
• People & Planet -
• Rising Tide - &
...and some shitty-brown suited security drones.

Call for creative responses to Shell's 'Oedipus'

11-10-2008 17:50

Shell is sponsoring the National Theatre's new production of 'Oedipus',and, unsurprisingly, Art Not Oil is preparing a response on variousfronts.

This could be an image, song, film or poem to appear on our website, or to be printed on a postcard or something similar. We're open to ideas. (Unfortunately, we aren't able to pay for your work, but we have no wish to possess it!)
If this is of interest, we'd love to see it as soon as possible, as 'Oedipus' runs until January 2009 only.
