About Burn It Down

Each piece will be a stand-alone scrutiny, calling out injustice and interrogating the systems that wield power. "The old have been let down, the young aren’t falling for it and everyone else can’t deny it, things aren’t right, tipping points are being reached. There is a restlessness, a vibration, a need to call it out and protest - yes, but actually it’s more than that, it feels like people are revving up to bring about some real change and we’re here for that, we’re inspired by it!"
