The Clearing is a vision of the future in the grounds of Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park

Post-apocalypse Pop

Saturday 30 September

Coca-cola is the modern world in liquid form. The taste, the packaging, the branding, the thrill of too much sugar in your bloodstream, is recognised by 7 billion people across the world. As globalised supply chains will be amongst the first things to go when the crash comes, this workshops asks: will we ever drink coke again?

This workshop, led by Kate Rich and Kayle Brandon, will introduce their cube-cola, an open source cola recipe. Kate and Kayle will try to help us make some passable coke out of the ingredients we’ll be able to harvest in the future. Where would the oils come from? The sugar? The fizz?

Kate will also discuss how global trade might work in the future through her Feral Trade project, which moves products and raw materials around with people as they travel from one country to another.

Note: we wanted to call this workshop ‘Always Coca-cola?’ but didn’t think we’d get away with it.
