Collective Creation between Welfarism and Austerity
Saturday 16 July, 12-5pm  

For our first Summercamp event, taking place across the summer, we have invited Professor Gavin Butt to develop and lead a day-long symposium, entitled Collective Creation between Welfarism and Austerity. The symposium is developed from Butt’s research on post-punk culture and British art schools and focuses on collective creation across art, music, and performance, between the heyday of the Polytechnic until today.
