Ecological performance art festival returns to Glasgow in March 2019: UNFIX
29th - 31st March 2019
UNFIX festival will take place in Glasgow in March 2019 offering a platform for international and local artists to investigate ecological crisis and renewal through the lens of social, cultural, political, environmental and personal transformation.
UNFIX conceives of individual human lives as a microcosm of the whole, and puts it to you: climate change and ecological transformation are happening inside your body, RIGHT NOW.
In the past three years, UNFIX has independently delivered three events at CCA Glasgow, three in New York, USA and most recently two editions in Tokyo, Japan. 2019 sees Artistic Director and Curator Paul Michael Henry join forces with producers Feral Arts and will be delivered in partnership with the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow.
With more still to be announced, the 2019 programme blends Scottish artists making work resonant with the themes of UNFIX, like Christiana Bisset, Alberta Whittle and Paul Michael Henry, with International Artists and activists such as Minako Seki, Holly Chernobyl and Niya (FKA Yani B) invited to collaborate, push the boundaries of their practice and articulate their work to new audiences.
"Ecology is the grand theme of our times, uniting not only climate change and the crisis of the Anthropocene but the various flows of consumerism, ageing and death, economics, mental health, soul and imagination. How can we love each other more? How can we wake up? Is the path we're on really fixed?' - Artistic Director Paul Michael Henry
"Overtly political, occasionally playful, full of provocation, and audacious in its scope and ambition." Exeunt Magazine on UNFIX: Rebirth Festival 2016

Choose what to pay based on your circumstances. We ask that you be honest with yourself and your financial situation. We have provided some guidance how to estimate what to pay, which will be found on the website. This guidance was worked up by SQIFF (Scottish Queer International Film Festival) and aims to make structural and class inequalities visible by spelling them out.
This allows us to provide financial flexibility to those who most need it and make UNFIX affordable to more people alongside sustaining the Festival and supporting artists.
If you have a free ticket and no longer require it we ask that you return it so someone else can make use of it.
If your situation means you'd struggle to make the cheaper ticket options, we have a small allocation of free tickets available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; first come first served and no questions asked.
