"You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world”
(Lennon/McCartney, 1968)

Revolution #10 takes its inspiration from a song on The Beatles’ White Album, Revolution #9, released in 1968. Now in 2014, with the rise of the far right across Europe, it is more important than ever to defend the idea of democracy itself, when so many people think that voting doesn’t change anything.

Revolution #10 gives the public a voice in creating A People’s Manifesto to express the hopes and fears of the nation for the next five years, as we approach the General Election in 2015. Our manifesto will consist of poetry, films, photographs, banners, sound recordings and anything else we can think of to express your ideas for the nation in an evolving exhibition and impromptu performances announced on twitter and facebook using the hashtag #revolution10
