Event: Nutopia Symposium, Cardiff

Nutopia Symposium
2/3 April 2009 @ Cardiff, UK

“Nutopia: Exploring the Metropolitan Imagination is a mapping process which seeks to explore the possibility of re- imaging utopia in relation to ‘the city’. The ways in which we can challenge the idea that city centres are purely spaces of consumption; look at possibilities for non-economic exchange; examine tensions between resistance and commodification and look at how this impacts our personal lives; the possibility to reinvent our cities, to reclaim; to consider the redevelopment and ownership of cities in the face of privatization; city architecture ~ Cathedrals to commerce; the language of regeneration, place as a perceptual landscape informed by a linguistic architecture.

Mobility Futures
“This paper examines a range of future possible scenarios as to the character, scale and significance of mobility patterns. These scenarios are examined within an emerging era which may well be characterized by dramatic climate change, the peaking of oil supplies and potential tipping points. The paper will address the question as to whether the period of high and growing mobility especially during the C20th was actually only a brief interlude in the longer term processes of human history.”

Exhibition: Climate For Change

Climate for Change @ FACT, Liverpool

“Climate change isn’t the only hot topic facing the planet. Environmental crisis, food crisis and housing crisis, all against the backdrop of an economic crisis that has been a long time coming. The 21st century has finally hit and there is an energy in the air – how do you respond? Forget the eco-art and bring on local, national and international debates, actions, contexts, struggles and solutions. With Stefan Szczelkun, Eyebeam’s Sustainability Research Group, Melanie Gilligan, Ghana Thinktank Project, N55, Anthony Iles of Mute Magazine, Glenn Davidson and, most importantly, a plethora of local activity and engagement.”
