Christmas Wrap Party!
Our Guest Editor this week is international artist Gavin Turk. He's one of the Young British Artists who in November was arrested as part of an Extinction Rebellion protest, and on Sunday 9 December will join 80 artists for the much anticipated launch of the Art Car Boot Fair Christmas Wrap Party!

In Gavin's interview with writer Tamsin Omond they chat all things ACBF, weird gifts, and waking up the world to climate crisis.

In our Magazine section, we premier the (NSFW) short film Look At Me Like That by Tamsin Omond and Marika Kochiashvilii, with score by Fay Milton (Savages), cello by Grace Chatto (Clean Bandit), and a script taken from more than 50 women’s candid interviews about their sexual experience. 'The film shows the bliss of realising and releasing your own sexual power' explains filmmaker Marika. Watch here.

Theatre maker Clare Beresford (Little Bulb Theatre) writes for Run-Riot about long journeys and the power of people putting faith in you.
