Call for creative responses to Shell's 'Oedipus'

Shell is sponsoring the National Theatre's new production of 'Oedipus',and, unsurprisingly, Art Not Oil is preparing a response on variousfronts. We're asking people if they're up for making an artwork of some kind as a response. 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. Read more >>

EV-EON: Nice Bit Of Subvertising (Shame About The Solutions)

Here’s something nice from a group that brainstormed an idea at the 2008 Climate Camp; EV-EON []. EON want to build the first of a whole raft of coal-fired power stations in the UK, so these guys decided - and I’m guessing there are a few graphic designers and web bods involved - to make a spoof, which works well.

Kingsnorth: Activists use climate change as defence for £30,000 tower

This week six Greenpeace activists charged with causing £30,000 of criminal damage to a power station have been on trial at Maistone Crown Court.
