There is a quirky, immersive free Tour going across the UK right now: Tour de Moon. I will be presenting at the Southampton weekend, 10-13 June.

It’s hard to quite even describe what this is: there will be talks, music, art, film and pretty much anything else you can imagine that is linked to the moon in some way. I have presented with people from the organising team several times over the years and it is honestly some of the best fun I’ve ever had at public events. (Shout out to my friend and colleague Nahum and the Kosmica Institute!)

Book free tickets and come join us!

From the Tour de Moon website:

“Tour de Moon provides a platform for plurality, fresh thinking and new ideas. It is a unique, immersive 3 city, 4 day festival of free public events all linked by a touring sustainable Convoy that celebrates nightlife and youth countercultures from across the UK and beyond.

Tour de Moon is a direct response to the current world we live in — where history is unfortunately repeating itself. Tour de Moon invites you to ask: WHY can’t we imagine a new way of thinking/dreaming/doing? IT’S TIME to use radical imagination to create alternative futures.

Tour de Moon is one of 10 major creative projects commissioned as part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK, which is taking place across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales in 2022.”
