Join our growing community of artists, students, academics, cultural activists and engaged citizens as we consider how to reimagine and reclaim public space in the context of our present social and political upheavals.

Pursuing this question through multiple lenses, the afternoon will centre on two sets of conversations.

The first, between artist Willie Doherty and curator Elvira Dyangani Ose, addresses the question of ‘how to share a place’ through Doherty’s longstanding engagement with the Ireland/Northern Ireland border.

The second conversation features a panel including Guardian columnist John Harris; sociologist Michael Rustin; and senior editor, Novara Media, Ash Sarkar. Titled ‘Meeting the Crisis: Trump, Brexit, and the Left’, it asks what is to be done. These two discussions will be punctuated with interventions and perspectives from a new generation of artists, scholars and cultural activists.

Take part in our mission to catalyse action towards disrupting the status quo and bringing forth more hopeful futures; characterised by social and racial justice.

The afternoon will include a short discussion of the many ways in which you can support and participate in our work.
