There are no simple solutions to identifying and solving Britain’s hidden civil war – we don’t know who is fighting or who we should be rooting to win – but that cannot mean simple surrender. Placing art at the heart of our exploration is no mistake, it’s vital, but it is not in isolation. Voices and ideas from the areas of food, land, travellers, domestic violence, poverty, asylum and debt are all vital to finding grains of truth that allow us to face up to our Hidden Civil War. To face difficult truths in troubled times, we require deep collaboration, reflection and above all, listening.
