TILT came together to create a dynamic, fluid and transformative multi-purpose communal space. Creating a ‘living installation’ in the NewBridge Project Space, individuals were invited to use components of the structure as a material in imaginative and playful ways to create adaptive spaces that facilitate the Hidden Civil War Programme of film screenings, workshops, meals and discussions.
