Event description

Description

This event is part of the Being Human Festival 2017.


This unique pop-up exhibition uses creative work to reflect on what it means to live within urban spaces affected by constant design, dereliction, and rejuvenation. Join students as they interact with artefacts, photography, film, art, and poetry to explore city ruination in exciting ways. From the city of London to Tunisian life in the suburbs, themes of nostalgia, home, abandonment, family and struggle are documented and imaginatively explored. Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours, join us and talk with the artists behind the work. You can even contribute to a public exhibit in this highly interactive event! By combining numerous disciplines including art and geography, this event offers something for everyone.
