Raqs Media Collective’s polyglot work has invoked companions as diverse as a cosmonaut, a deep-sea diver, and a thoughtful robot, as they have thought through questions of resources, equity and abundance at a global level over several years. Provisions for Everybody, commissioned by AV Festival, foregrounds these ideas while re-thinking George Orwell’s question, ‘Meanwhile, what about Socialism?. Continuing this conversation, Raqs will convene a round-table –A Raft in Space– inviting people from Newcastle and its neighbourhood, to think together the global urgency of ‘Provisions for Everybody’.
