About

This is a day-long workshop to stimulate debate and discussion about the city as stimulus and resource for artists. How do artists function, flourish and create in the city? How does the city inspire a creative response? How does the everyday life of the city become an inspiration? Does the nature of this inspiration change as cities expand, develop and transform? This workshop will explore and expand upon the ways in which one can utilise the city as a creative spring board, given the background of degeneration and regeneration seen over the last twenty years or so. This event will draw together artists, architects, London residents, tourists, urban designers, town planners, live artists, cultural researchers and member of council development teams. It will draw on disciplines of photography, drawing, urban planning, architecture, psychogeography and installation to explore the limitations and boundaries of traditional cartographic methods. The workshop aims to develop personal cartographies of the urban realm, developing intricate maps of the imagination in a diversity of forms and media. Participants will be actively encouraged to venture beyond all conventions of traditional mapping and to develop new and innovative ways of relating to urban form. Results of the day will be evaluated with a view to developing forums and workshop series designed to further support artists and researchers working in the area of modern urban living. This workshop runs alongside the group exhibition in the Jerwood Space Café space Un;Place The six artists featured in this exhibition will be present, alongside an academic panel inclusive of Dr Bob Jarvis (LSBU) Santiago Escobar Jaramillo (Arquitecto Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Manizales headquarters) Alex Hamilton (Tate) Jack Riccards (Goldsmiths) Imogen Lee (MRes historian, Goldsmiths). The day will take the shape of a panel discussion in the morning, followed by walks around and responses to the area in the afternoon, with an evaluation session to conclude.
