Together with ART 2030, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen has created a largescale performance project incorporating Goals 4, 8, 10 and 12.


Performing with custom-made uniforms created by the sustainable Scandinavian design studio sur le chemin, the artwork casts a critical light on the globalized textile industry.


Presented at several venues around the world, Tow with the Flow is an ever evolving work. By continuously working with new groups of young people, the project transcends borders and social backgrounds for a common cause: creating awareness about alternative modes of consumption for a more sustainable future.


Tow with the Flow was part of Roskilde Festival's Art & Activism program July 2018, and was shown at the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen September 1st. During ART 2030 New York, September 24th 2018, Tow with the Flow was performed in New York in collaboration with students from New Design High School.
