2 minutes to midnight: an extravaganza

People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy

2 minutes to midnight is a worldwide celebration of the arts and activism inspired by People Get Ready – a book about the future that is now. Read a chapter, read it all, feel what inspires and create work to share online from January to July 2021 and as part of an international festival in September ’21. Now’s the time to transcend manipulated political divides, outflank mass media and create works that touch our common humanity.

Activate your art. Share your vision. Shift the story.

How can any type of artist contribute to the transition beyond capitalism?

2m2m is a platform for artists and activists to share works inspired by People Get Ready online between January and July 2021.

People Get Ready is about rapidly accelerating computing power controlled by corporations that prioritize profit over liberty, equal rights and democracy.

Artists and activists can popularize a fresh approach to economics and politics through works that move us, make us feel, consider and laugh. A creative front is needed.

In September ’21, 2m2m hosts a festival of works locally around the world with some featured at galleries, theaters and concert halls in Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Oceania.

2 minutes to midnight – a televised extravaganza premieres in early 2022.


Feel how People Get Ready inspires you, then write, paint, dance, code, do what you do. Present your work locally and share it with the world.
