Save Event: Symposium | "We Are Moving" - The Future of the High Street

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


“We Are Moving” is a symposium and exhibition of photographs, recordings, archive material and artistic responses to changes taking place on Cheltenham’s Lower High Street as it undergoes redevelopment, an observation of the evolution of space and place.


The nation’s High Streets are increasingly contentious spaces where the cut and thrust of private and public capital is enacted daily in mighty and mundane ways, so what and who is the 21st century High Street for? The symposium that accompanies the exhibition will discuss the transformation of Cheltenham’s urban landscape in this context, exploring the idealism and imaginings of past times and seeking to envision future public environments that are both for and not-for commerce.

A hand-bound publication that accompanies the exhibition is available at the launch event and from The Wilson’s shop for £5.00. Symposium attendees receive a free copy of the publication.
