Guest Speaker: Artists and Academic Clare McCracken
The Topic: What role does art play in our interaction with urban spaces?
Big, small, permanent or ephemeral, commissioned or guerilla, art in public space is increasingly a part of our cities. This forum combines artists, theorists and urban designers in a discussion followed by a Q&A to interrogate how art shifts our experience of cities.
