Want to join a one of over 100 student groups? You've come to the right place: find out about the group, their activities, and become a member now.
We will be organising, developing, and enacting a yearly non-profit encounter among different communities that coexist in South London with a strong local identity that are currently undergoing social and economic change. These areas would be located out of the university and both their aspect and their circumstances will lead the contents of the encounters. This event would have a duration of 3 days and will consist in combining academic, creative and hard-to-classify sessions. Some sessions will have a performative character, such as talks, discussions or live music, while others would consist on a more plastic approach towards the space, suggesting grafts and ephemeral interventions resulting in the ability to merge and or camouflage with a specific space in order for a multidisciplinary osmosis to take place.
Our aim is to serve as a bridge between students, practitioners and communities, and hopefully bring to life an often-talked about (but rarely realised) interdisciplinary action. Therefore, we have been exploring “ordinary” spaces that might be able to stage such sessions. These include our local Butchers shop, an Off-Licence store on a busy street or a nondescript corner pub. The sites chosen aim to involve interested community members in an academic and/or artistic context that is often hostile or dismissive and most of the time inaccessible to them, and to question the validity of classed institutional spaces as the only loci for cultural cross-pollination.
