Mark Thomas is well versed in the art of creative mayhem, and over the years his troublemaking has changed laws, cost companies millions and annoyed those who most deserved to be.
In 2014 Mark set himself the task of committing 100 Acts of Minor Dissent in the space of a year. Mark catalogued everything from the smallest and silliest gesture to the grandest confrontations and the results are subversive, hilarious, mainly legal and occasionally inspiring. This culminated in an exhibition at Sheffield Millennium Galleries and a four-hour live event at The Leadmill when all 100 acts were re-lived.
In this event Mark reflects on that project and on his on-going work to creatively challenge repressive authority whenever it shows its face.
