Designed by Treatment, the multi-surface installation created a dynamic canvas for the collaborative body of climate-focused work by artists from Manchester, Birmingham, and London, curated by renowned photographer Misan Harriman, Chair of the Southbank Centre. The free immersive installation combines film, photography, music, and sound design, which offers a unique perspective on the climate emergency, grounded in the cultural backgrounds of the artists.
