THE CHILDREN OF THE AFTERMATH are an ever expanding group of young people tasked with representing the ADP in America. The first group of Teenagers from Toxteth UK will accompany the ADP to NYC then pass the container on to the next group of volunteers and so on until it reaches the West coast some time in 2019
NOTE TO THE PRESIDENT: THIS IS NOT A REAL RIOT! IT’S A TOURING MODEL VILLAGE

ADP 2 and ADP3
have now been dismantled
the containers disposed of and the contents returned to the workshop
Is still on the road
there are currently 3 containers on tour ADP 1 a 40ft container containing a dystopian version of Bedford ADP 2 a 10ft container containing New Bedford Tower, a utopian extension to Bedford town centre ADP 3 containing The Bridge that connects ADP 2 to ADP 1
AS OF 16TH JUNE THE ADP RIOT TOUR HAS BEEN AWARDED £49,000 BY THE ARTS COUNCIL OF ENGLAND IN SUPPORT OF WHAT THEY’VE DESCRIBED AS AN OUTSTANDING PROJECT.
So, as predicted we are now FUNDED BY THE STATE FOR THE STATE or FUNDED BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE or maybe WASTING TAX PAYERS MONEY AT 36 HISTORIC RIOT SITES AROUND THE COUNTRY, or even: PROVIDING AN OUTSTANDING and CRITICALLY ENGAGING ARTWORK FOR FREE TO A DIVERSE RANGE OF COMMUNITIES ON A NATIONWIDE SCALE…
YOU CAN BE THE JUDGE
On a practical level, the Arts Council money makes the realisation of the complete tour more secure. BUT we cannot rest on our laurels. £49K was the most we could ask for without the application becoming too complicated. According to our budget plans we still need to raise another £50K (at least) over the next 6 months to keep the ball rolling.
SO please continue with your fantastic support and buy what you can to help keep the ADP containers on the move.
