Taking a look at “the beautiful game” through graphic design and illustration, I Love Soccer Because Soccer Has Never Loved Me presents artwork from international graphic artists.

When:?30 June 2018

Where: Constellations

Offering a spectacular soundtrack to the season, Constellations is set to host one-day festival Disco?S?crates. The event will showcase music culture at its best and intertwine social and political themes from around the world.
