Curator: Bridget Nicholls | Sponsor: Wellcome Trust
As part of their Miniatures Series, the Wellcome Collection commissioned Pestival founder and creative director, Bridget Nicholls, to curate an evening on the theme of entomophobia. The show featured a projection of Percy Smith’s 1911 documentary on the ‘Strength and Agility of Insects’ with live piano accompaniment, a collection of 100-year-old fleas in Mexican wedding clothing and an actual flea circus.

Calling all insect-loving creatives to #makemoreinsects. Help us swarm all over Instagram this summer with insect-inspired arts, raise awareness of their precarious plight and put in our best effort to combat their rapid decline.
The insects need our help so let’s make more by any means necessary.
