In July, 2015, Ben ran the Children’s Republic of Liverpool at Casula Powerhouse as part of the Way out West Festival 2015. The event welcomed over 10,000 participants, and culminated in an epic parade at the end of the 4 day festival. The Children’s Republic was initially conceived as part of Situate Art in Festivals Lab in 2013.
