Over the course of their work placement since November 2021 a group of Nottingham Trent University students have created issue 5 of Response - a magazine collection of fictional and non-fictional texts, photographs, and other artworks in reaction to Our Silver City 2094, Nottingham Contemporary's current sci-fi meets climate change exhibition.

This unique issue explores themes surrounding Liz Jensen's Our Silver City, 2094, the novella that shaped the exhibition. It engages and simultaneously confronts readers about climate change and the importance of our own awareness of the deepening crisis.

The upcoming launch event for Response 5 will highlight its focus on sustainability and community in art with interactive student-led activities including poetry readings, Q&A session, seed planting and wire sculpting.

Join us to receive your free copy of Response 5, and to meet the writers, artists, photographers and designers who have created this issue. Be one of the lucky guests to receive a copy containing limited edition artist inserts.
