Jill Magid, Do Ho Suh and Assemble are among the speakers at this event exploring situated practice, contemporary art, architecture and urbanism.


The second event in a three-part series collaboration between the Folkestone Triennial 2017 and University College London. The series brings together practitioners and thinkers at three 'edge' locations connected by the High Speed 1 railway to consider creative place-making, arts-led urbanism, the sensory, social and environmental impact of their individual approaches, and together generate a narrative exploration of the creative use of interstitial spaces.

For the second event, we consider the environs of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Investment for the 2012 Games brought rapid development to the previously neglected Stratford area. Here East, within the former press and broadcasting centre of the Games, is envisaged as a cluster of innovators and digital makers, whilst the Stratford Waterside development will bring new institutions including the V&A, Sadler's Wells, London College of Fashion, and UCL.

Keynotes: Jill Magid and Do Ho Suh

Other speakers: Assemble, Jan Boelen, Jane Rendell, Kreider + O’Leary, MUF, Oreet Ashery, Public Works, SPACE, and Stephen Pritchard
