Secret Agents of Change!

September 14th 2022

Overview

The secret agents of change are people who work together to make the world a better place. They can take the form of anything from activists, artists, and educators who believe in the power of change. They strive to promote social and economic justice, and to create a more peaceful and sustainable world in which future generations can thrive.

Remix Play 5 will explore our roles as individuals, communities, and institutions in influencing, shaping, and mobilising change through playful and frugal practice. Change can take many forms, including social, environmental, economical, cultural, and educational transformation.

The event will include inspiring talks, hands-on activities, and exhibitions, and will take place on September 14th 2022! We will be adding more details throughout August so check back soon to learn more. In the meantime you can register for the event here.
