Thu 22 – Sat 24 Nov, 10am-7pm
For 3 days over the festival Sarah Caputo and Brenda Unwin will be collecting 1000 handshakes.
By placing a small piece of clay between the hands they will create a unique impression of a moment of communication between strangers. The handshake is a universal symbol of greeting, parting, agreement and acknowledgement. It’s a physical connection all the more significant in our contactless, virtual reality, hands-free world.
Their aim is to encourage interaction between people and create concrete evidence of a moment of communication between pairs of previous strangers.
Join us in the bus station as we put people in touch with each other and create thousands of new connections.
