About this event:

Hell Bus – Darren Cullen aka Spelling Mistakes Cost Lives

Darren is a satirical artist from Leeds, now based in south London where he runs the Museum of Neoliberalism. Cullen is best known for his Mini Daily Mail, Action Man: Battlefield Casualties toys, and Pocket Money Loans payday loan shop for kids which featured at Banksy’s Dismaland.

His latest project is the Hell Bus, a pre-apocalyptic marketing suite about oil company greenwashing, focusing on Shell, and satirising the absurd spectacle of oil and gas corporations attempting to convince the public that they’re going to help save the world from oil and gas corporations.

Cullen’s anti-Shell work has previously been the subject of an unsuccessful cease and desist from Shell who didn’t find it very funny, but the bus has toured around the country from COP26 to Glastonbury and will be free to view at Make Hamilton Square on Saturday 19th November.

Pop in after work for a tour of the bus, followed by a talk and Q&A with Darren!

– Bus open from 5pm

– Bar open from 5pm

– Talk and Q&A 6pm
