World Cities: What are we doing here?
Sun 21 August 2016, 17:30 – 19:00 BST
Join artist Lucy Cash and designer Hefin Jones in conversation with UP Projects curator Anna Ramsay, as they discuss connections between their current projects in Ilford and Battersea, two culturally distinct parts of London, both defined by large inequalities of wealth and provision. Reflecting on time spent as part of each community, both will recount their experiences, which range from problem solver, improviser, cross-pollinator to mediator.
Featuring exclusive footage from each artist’s forthcoming films, this conversation will look at how communities grow and sustain themselves in an ever changing city and how community-led resilience can form a fresh response to the forces of commercial regeneration.
