- a seminar:
Playing in Urban Places.
3 October 9am 5pm
Followed by an evening reception.
This seminar seeks to investigate the creative ways that a city is
uncovered and discovered, while generating a platform for discussion
and debate around the experience of interacting with location. Using
the work of Alex Hartley as a contextual springboard the day will
become a stimulating event to explore creative and innovative
engagement with the urban.
This is a seminar for artists, architects, curators, educators,
students, and those working in related fields of geography, urban
planning, literacy, and so forth.
The day will showcase an international selection of researchers and
artists through paper presentations, interactive installation, sound,
video and performances, on the following themes:
o Innovative engagements between art and architecture
o Navigating places, paths and barriers
o Subversive and transgressive acts to take back the city
