Public Powers

Cultural Curator, Nate Agbetu partnered with Dr Chetna Sharma, Research Fellow from the Institute for Global Health, UCL

About the project

Public Powers sparks consciousness around the spaces we move through, unearthing who they are made for and all the ways we can shape their future. Together they have created ‘Sonic Sculptures’ using dialogue and a highly produced listening environment to plant seeds of inspiration for reflection and debate.

Community Convenings

Artists and researcher, Nate Agbetu and Chetna Sharma invite you to join them to listen to their ‘Sonic Sculpture’ installations. The listening sessions will be paired with a chance to discuss the themes, exchange ideas for claiming public power and food to fuel the thoughts. Wear your favourite socks, no shoes in the installation.

Saturday 23rd March from 1pm - 3pm
Saturday 30th March: 6pm - 8pm

Contemporary Sites of Heritage: Mapping Workshop

We all know one unforgettable part of East London that should be there forever - where’s yours? 

In this workshop we’ll be using maps of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets & Waltham Forest to highlight spaces across the east end that deserve to be preserved forever. From the markets to the after school hang out spots, we want to illustrate the spaces of gathering and exchanging that are important to communities in our city. Wear your favourite socks, no shoes in the installation.

Saturday 30th March from 1pm - 3pm 

Email Nate to book. Please share any access or dietry needs.
