The Living Room: A Garden of Garbage


Based on the Basim Magdy exhibition, this interactive event hosted by the Teen Creative Agency (TCA), invites visitors to clean up the mess of society by throwing away bad or useless social rules and replacing them with symbols of positivity. Come contribute to a huge installation and have conversations about how you would like to see our society cleaned up.
