Graeme Evans: Utopia and Connected Communities

7 December 2016 10:00 am to 11:00 am
The British Library; 96 Euston Rd, London, NW1 2DB

Graeme will present at this one day conference on the theme of ‘Re-Use of Cultural Heritage’ based on the AHRC Festival award he received for work on civic and industrial heritage spaces. This included a 10 day exhibition event with BA Interior Architecture and MA Polimi student’s and staff at Hornsey Town Hall, held during the London Festival of Architecture in June, and workshop/engagement events organised at the Three Mills in Bow, East London. The latter formed part of the ongoing 3-year AHRC Hydrocitizenship project and the Active Energy water wheel installation planned for this site by Dr Loraine Leeson and The Geezers.

The 2016 Connected Communities festival celebrated the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s Utopia and these festival events considered their Utopian pasts and Heterotopian futures against a backdrop of gentrification and the enduring sense of place that these heritage buildings provide for their local communities.
