Jeremy Deller is keynote speaker at this event exploring situated practice, contemporary art, architecture and urbanism.

'Gateway' is the first in a three-part series collaboration with Folkestone Triennial 2017 to bring together practitioners and thinkers at three 'edge' locations connected by the High Speed 1 railway, to consider creative place-making, arts-led urbanism, and the use of interstitial spaces in the city.

For this first event, we consider Bloomsbury and King's Cross as 'edge' locations. The Gower Street campus of UCL was planned and built on the urban/rural edge of nineteenth-century London, a 'learning' gateway through which generations of students have now passed, and one which now runs up against the King's Cross development, conceived as a mix of 'knowledge' and 'transport' gateways.

The series is organised by the UCL Urban Laboratory and Folkestone Triennial 2017, with additional support from the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL and The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
