From now until June, museums, galleries and public spaces across the country will be hosting debates, talks and workshops asking the question: What if…? Find an event that appeals to you, go along, and get inspired to conduct your own 24 hour experiment on 20th June 2012.

Is it still possible to avoid this scenario? By taking immediate and decisive action, can we imagine a different future for East Anglia? If not, what is to become of its culture and its people?
