An afternoon symposium on creativity, collectivity and historicisation within group culture.
Using Ruth Beale's exhibition at Trade as a starting point, the symposium will bring together six speakers from a number of different fields, including a musician, a historian, an archaeologist, and a curator. By describing their areas of expertise, the speakers will expand upon notions of interconnectedness and creating meaning through research put forward in the show. The day will pull together and provoke discussion around the historicisation of various groups' activities, and connecting threads such as work, leisure, politics, escapism, mark-making and the shaping of landscape.

Speakers:
Matt Beresford, archaeologist and educator
Wayne Evans, musician
Frank Grafton, Nottingham Clarion Cycling Club (TBC)
Chris Matthews, historian and designer
Gillian Whiteley, artist-curator and academic
Fatos Ustek, curator
