Agitpod is a solar-powered cinema system mounted on a quadricycle. It was designed by students at Southwark College in a mobile eco-design project led by PLATFORM. Agitpod is designed to show agitational propaganda and is being cycled from Tower Bridge in London to Arnolfini Centre for Contemporary Arts, Bristol – for C Words, a season of ecological and social justice events.It leaves on Wednesday 23rd September and will arrive in Bristol between 26th-29th September.

It will navigate a safe route between the two port cities along Roman roads, country lanes and through the backstreets of towns, roughly following the Kennet and Avon canal. Cycling is part of PLATFORM’s attempt to encourage cultural venues to move to lower carbon means of transport.
