From 6 - 30 August 2021, Baff Akoto presents UP:RISE nationwide. Marking the 10th anniversary of the August 2011 “UK riots”, UP:RISE exhibits via QR codes located nationwide in communities where incidents of unrest were recorded in the summer of 2011. Akoto’s UP:RISE exhibition is accompanied by community workshops and a conversation series bringing together artists and thought leaders with community and youth voices to explore the inherent themes of the work, delving into how digital networks connect marginalised people and shape real-world mass dissent.

To culminate the exhibition, on 28 August 2021 we will stream Baff Akoto's new film, UP:RISE TV from our website. Watch online, from wherever you are in the world, below.

UP:RISE TV will be streamed here from 10:00 on Saturday 28 August 2021.
