Infrastructures of Making
10 November 2016
The Triangle, SPACE Studios,
129 – 131 Mare Street E8
Deborah Saunt and David Hills take part to Theatrum Mundi's round table discussion on Spaces for 'Cultural' Making in the city, seeking to define what role architecture and spatial policies should play in sustaining creativity and its infrastructure in the city.
This event is part of a series of three expert round tables to debate issues raised by Sadiq Khan’s plans to create a Cultural Infrastructure plan for London, asking if and how the conditions for cultural production can be designed. The three events were developed with and hosted by organisations that provide space for the production of artistic forms with very different relationships to the city: performance at Siobhan Davies Studios in October; making at SPACE Studios in November, and the virtual at The Trampery in December. They assembled over 50 artists, performers, architects, writers, urbanists, scholars and institutional leaders as well as a representative from the Greater London Authority’s Culture Team.
A working paper, compiling the ideas and questions raised during these discussions will be shared with the GLA’s Culture Team in April and developed into a full report for publication in September 2017.
