Behaviour Talks: The City as a Cultural Site

A free discussion event as part of Behaviour 2012

Sat 21 Apr 2012 | 4pm-6pm (approx) | Free

What is the role of arts and culture in changing and shaping the identity of Glasgow? What are the similarities and differences between our city and other cities? What does the rise in reclaimed buildings as art spaces – the Glue Factory and the Old Hairdressers, for example – mean in the context of a post industrial landscape? What are the issues around artist-led DIY initiatives versus more top-down strategic regeneration? And what is the Arches’ place within all this?

Join members of Gob Squad, Harun Morrison from the Fierce Festival Birmingham and Helen Cole of Inbetween Time Productions and author/lecturer Dr Jonathan Charley as we consider the role of the city as ‘a cultural site.’ Chaired by Francis McKee, Director of the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA).
