UFO is a place for revolutionary ideas. A podcast where artists, musicians and web3 builders talk about the future. Hosted by Nick Hollins and produced by Apollo.
Charlie Waterhouse is a co-founder of the Art Group and Media team at Extinction Rebellion based in London. He’s Creative Director of This Ain’t Rock ’n’ Roll and a director of the Brixton Pound.
In this episode, we talk about the origins of Extinction Rebellion, a global movement using non-violent direct action to persuade governments to take action on climate, and inspire public consciousness to the cause.
We explore how design and art played a part in its formation. And talk about direct actions by XR including the recent protest at the House Of Commons in the UK, in which activists glued themselves to each other around the speakers chair.
Also learnings that may be taken from web3 and DAOs, and lines drawn between 1960s counterculture, punk and current day social movements.
