HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD

 In association with Artsadmin 2 Degrees Festival  

 At the heart of the climate catastrophe is money - vested interests with lobbying power and capital. Climate breakdown is a symptom of our broken economic system.  How do we fix it and in turn save the world? Come together in the bank, in front of an exploded van to look at ways of moving the economy rapidly away from dependence on fossil fuels and financial speculation.  How can we act collectively now to hold power to account? Declare Climate Emergencies across councils and cities? Support divestment campaigns? Join with Extinction Rebellion and their demands for Citizen’s Assemblies? Push for governmental change and a Green New Deal?  How are movements built and how do they succeed – in time? How are artists joining and leading this fight?

Free entry but let us know you’re coming here.

Paying cocktail bar.

The Bank is approx 110 metres from Walthamstow Central train and tube station.

The only two road crossings you need to make along the way from station to venue are both proper pedestrial crossings with green man/red man lights and with step-free access from the pavement.

The front doors to the Bank when open at their widest provide a gap of 88cm. There are no steps or other obstacles, There is a gentle slope up from the front door into the main area which is entirely flat.

Unfortunately the venue does not have accessible toilets. Cubicles are small and accessing them requires getting through a doorway gap of 62cm. Toilet seats are 44cm, and sinks are 86cm, above ground.

We do not have central heating and as such the space can be quite cold at times. We will have blankets on hand for any visitor who wants one during their time in the bank.
