I'll be in Kennington Park London, on Sunday 5th July
To refine and generate some of the intellectual content, and perhaps some of the participants for Parade, Critical Practice are planning to convene a PubliCamp in Kennington Park – a former common, scene of a huge public Chartist gathering, enclosed (with Royal sponsorship), and now a ‘public’ park.
We intend to explore different conceptions of the publicness - historical, cultural, political, social, architectural and digital. We aim to develop a shared ethic towards the notion of public goods and will not be deterred by the disagreeable, contentious, messy, inefficient, live, improvisatory and provisional nature of Being in Public. Public, common or shared resources are like muscles, they become stronger with exercise.
