Decompression 2015!

Once again, as the seasons turn, we get another opportunity to gather again and share memories – and decompress! It’s a little later this year than last, due to it becoming quite a challenge to find a venue that can contain the sheer fabulosity of all of you in one place – but we’ve nailed down a venue, and yes, yebo, ja – it’s on for the 15th of August!

Will it be as wild and wonderful as our thing in the desert? But of course, because – just like Tankwa Town – it’s all created by you. It all starts at 12 midday, and ends around 12 midnight – hell, you could even call it a daycompression. Here’s what the day & night session features this time round:

Mutant Vehicles:

– Rommel
– +++ tbc

Film Screenings:

– Short clips
– artists are also invited to show their build & burn clips.
