Like to play with words? So do we! Come hang out with our poet-in-residence and have a go at some writing games, techniques and activities – or just curl up with a cup of tea and a book! We will have plenty of resources, materials, and poetry for you to get stuck into so just drop in – no need to register. The sessions run weekly on Wednesdays from 5 December between 10am and noon – and will carry on into the new year, too. Spread the word!

Housing Matters #4 // An Alternative Urban Politics @ Open House
Feb 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
For as long as cities have existed and for as long as people have tried to control the urban realm, an alternative urban politics has shadowed progress, questioning and subverting systems of power. In his book ‘The Autonomous City’, Alex Vasudevan explores the history of squatting; as a necessity, as a cultural phenomenon and as a way of challenging and imagining alternatives to the city as it is presented to us. Alex is joined by Dr Debra Benita Shaw, a Reader in Cultural Theory in the School of Arts & Digital Industries and co-director of the Centre for Cultural Studies Research
