30 October, 2014 - Urban Pamphleteer #3 launch: Design & Trust

Time: 18:30:00 - 21:00:00

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Join UCL Urban Laboratory for the launch of Urban Pamphleteer #3: Design & Trust, as part of the programme for Cities Methodologies 2014. Urban Pamphleteer is a series of publications that confront key contemporary urban questions from diverse perspectives. Written in a direct and accessible tone, these pamphlets draw on the history of radical pamphleteering as a tool for instigating change. Design & Trust asks what the consequences are of prioritising defence and security as a first principle in design – an issue that has recently fired up the news agenda in public campaigns to remove ‘anti-homeless’ spikes and critiques of so-called ‘hostile architecture’ in public spaces. A number of the researchers and artists featured in this issue will be in conversation to summarise their contributions. Urban Pamphleteer is supported by the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities and the UCL Urban Laboratory.

3 December, 2014 - The Graffiti Sessions

Time: -

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Hosted by UCL Urban Laboratory, the Graffiti Dialogues Network at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) and Southbank Centre, the Graffiti Sessions will gather a wide group of experts to debate issues surrounding graffiti. We aim to identify new horizons for future city strategies on graffiti and opportunities and challenges for evolving creative practice, towards places that are both safe and sociable. The event comprises a three-day series of talks, workshops and panel debates exploring the evolving roles of graffiti and street art in the urban environment. The ambition is to challenge deep-rooted preconceptions and speculation that have until now limited the progress of both policy and practice related to street art and graffiti. Bringing together key institutions and individuals, the project will establish an open and sustainable discussion forum for the exchange of a broad scope of viewpoints and positions on street art and graffiti.
