All rise for the Planet - 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, Tate Modern, London

Saturday, July 13, 2019 - 12:00 to Sunday, July 14, 2019 - 17:00

Join 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning at the people's court as the Establishment is placed on trial for its complicity in climate breakdown


The year is 2030. Scientists’ warnings from 2019 went unheeded and the consequences of climate destruction are now apparent. You are summoned for jury duty at the people’s court as the Establishment is placed on trial for its complicity in climate breakdown. Governments, industry, the media, academia, art institutions, and the citizenry are called to account, and their actions assessed in light of what they knew in 2019.

Part-theatre, part-art installation, part-people’s court, this groundbreaking event about climate justice and accountability will present testimonies, along with visuals and video installations, bringing this trial to life as an immersive experience.

Overseen by a judge, it will then be up to you, the jury, to decide whether each party is guilty as charged.

Join climate litigation charity Plan B, visual arts organisation 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, True Name Theatre, and People’s Bureau for the trial of our lives.
