TangentProjects | Take part in 'Market of Ideas'

TangentProjects the collaborative group I work with have been invited to take part in 'Market of Ideas', as part of Parade organised by Critical Practice. Come and find us and take part in our discussion...

Critical Practice would like to invite you to Parade. This landmark event will explore the diverse, contested and vital conceptions of being in public. Set in a bespoke, temporary structure with a host of international contributors, Parade will challenge the lazy, institutionalised model of knowledge transfer. Our modes of assembly, our forms of address and the knowledge we share will be intimately bound.

Location: The Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground, Chelsea College of Art and Design (beside Tate Britain) 16 John Islip St., London, SW1P 4JU (travel info below)

Friday 21st May, 5pm - 7pm: Launch
Potluck snacks (bring and share) while Open Music Archive plays music from the commons

Saturday 22nd May, 10am - 6pm: A Day of Consecutive BarCamps

These open, participatory workshop-events will explore publicness, past, present and future. Come and contribute.

Sunday 23rd May, 2pm - 6pm: The Market of Ideas
Markets are good at distributing resources. Based on the model of the ancient bazaar, Parade will convene a Market of Ideas in which 'stalls' staffed by artists, academics, urbanists, geographers, environmentalists, health workers, anthropologists, economists and others exchange their knowledge with the milling public.The Market of Ideas will explore the distribution of public knowledge, embody peer-2-peer exchange, and build communal resources.
