'Medicament For Your Predicament' is an experimental pharmacy of political medicines. From antidotes to ire and diuretics for disillusionment to cures for capitalism – tonics, salves, gargles and powders for our soluble and insoluble bodies.

Take part in OPEN LAB! a hands-on workshop to diagnose matters close to the heart and formulate your very own remedy and recipe for transformation.

Drawing on her unique sensory, botanic and social practices, artist Cat Jones creates space for participants to share recipes passed down through generations and across diverse communities whilst experimenting with new approaches to collective and mutual care for our complicated times.
