      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
