Downstairs, is a place where a cultural relationship and visual programming between art collectives and contra-rt can be seen. A place where impactful visual storytelling is central. An exhibition space and education center where exhibitions, lectures, videography, workshops, poetry and visual storytelling and our educational program find a home. Inside the hull of the ship, an architectural design inspired by Richard Serra's steel sculptures. ​ We open with an art exhibition from Noor Images : called Ripples, Climate crisis, conflict, and social inequality through the great connector; water. This fits with the identity we want to establish as a single-issue expo space that focuses on climate-related issues and impactful visual storytelling. “We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change and the last generation who can do something about it.” - Barack Obama, Former US President -
