How Near is Here? is a collective enquiry centred on locality – a complex term that refers to geographical surroundings, the people occupying an area, or the buildings and spaces that define it. The programme brings together artists, organisations and academics working across the field of art and/in 'the urban', examinging why locality is a contested and widespread concern. Key questions posed will be 'What constitutes the local now?' and 'What role does art (and culture) play in constructing a locality?' 

How Near is Here? Symposium is a chance to discuss case studies and approaches to working ‘locally’, and will include talks by Alexandra Baudelot (Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers), Janna Graham (Centre for Possible Studies) and Kate Gray (Collective); a walking tour led by artist Mitch Miller; a screening of work by Dennis McNulty; and keynote lectures by anthropologist of architecture Albena Yaneva (The University of Manchester) and Fulya Erdemci (curator of the 13th Istanbul Biennial).

How Near is Here? Intensive Programme offers a unique opportunity for those interested in the role of 'site' in art practice and ‘making the urban’ to be involved in a generative and focused study programme. Over four days, participants will take part in, trial and discuss practices that question how we live in and understand our locale.

Each day will involve workshops, screenings and discussions with Emma Balkind, Chloe Cooper, Julie Crawshaw, Charlotte Knox-Williams, Florrie James, Kristina Norman, Eastern Surf and Harry Weeks; and group readings that depart from Saskia Sassen's essay Does The City Have Speech? 

Concessions are available for students, unemployed persons and those in receipt of means tested benefits. 

A few bursary places will also be available, please contact mail@collectivegallery.net for more information.
