ICA – Symposium: Art on the Streets

I had the great pleasure to take part in this highly informative talk at the ICA with some super talented speakers.

This symposium explores the diversity of creative responses to our changing urban environment – from street art and graffiti to yarn bombing and urban photography. The speakers will discuss creative connections to, material engagements with, and affective responses to, the urban environment, and the relevance of contemporary urban interventions to a critical understanding of the lived city. The programme brings together leading contemporary researchers, curators, artists and photographers in the field of urban creativity.

Olly Walker: The Fight for London’s Streets
