Old Red Presents project 'DISTORT'. We are calling local designers, illustrators and artists to respond to and consider the ways in which human behaviours are controlled and manipulated within our society. Works will be exhibited in The Bus Station to coincide with the venue's 6th birthday celebration in March.

About the Venue: 

The Old Red Bus Station is one of Leeds most loved grass roots venues, with a DIY ethic, vegan canteen, bar, exhibition space and underground club / event space. ORBS has been giving Leeds raw, cutting edge music for over five years and continues to support local and new talent. 

The Brief:

Politics, Social Media and Advertising are just a few of the many things that (whether we like it or not) have large impacts on our behaviors and the decisions we make. We would like you to visually explore the concept of behavioural conditioning within our society. 

Listed below are some ideas to get you started…..

Forced behaviour. Subconscious actions. Free will. Compliance. Obedience. Submission. Coercion. Operant conditioning. Abuse of Power. Control of the Media. Censoring. 

If any previous work you have created fits this brief please feel free to submit it.

Deadline: Submissions need to be received by us by 14.03.22

Who can get involved? Everyone as long as you have a connection to Leeds.
