Going Nowhere is one event happening on two sides of the globe – in Melbourne, Australia and in Cambridge, UK – exploring how artists, communities and audiences can sustainably generate international creative experiences without getting on a plane.
Through a series collaborations, Going Nowhere rehearses possible futures and embraces the shared delights of staying put and reaching out.
