1885 was the year drunken religious leader James Jezreel had pinned to complete his magnum opus – an impressive tower atop Chatham Hill for him and his followers to wait out the apocalypse. This may seem far fetched but history repeats itself. Unique world climates breed both people wanting something to believe in and people using fake news and recruitment tactics to buy into something (or even just buy something) under the guise of doing what’s right for themselves and the world.

This all begs the question – what would the Jezreelites be like today?

Come and explore the world of misinformation and augmented reality (optional on your phone). Upstairs in Gillingham Library. Please note on Saturday the exhibition is open 9am-5pm.
