tactileBOSCH presents UnderTheCounterCulture (UTCC) an immersive, site responsive, multimedia programme celebrating the interconnection between art and night culture.

UTCC takes place across multiple Cardiff venues throughout Oct and Nov 2019. Presenting exhibitions, events, performances, screenings and participatory workshops.


Night culture has long been at the forefront of avant-garde arts practice, with club culture consistently inspiring creative activity and collective action. Inhibitions and expectations are deconstructed, revealing a platform for free expression, experimentation, participation and play.

We want to shine a light on the value of grass roots night spaces to our urban landscape. In a world of increasing hostility and disconnect these spaces offer a unique platforms for inclusion, connection and presence.
