002 Do It With Others

For the second event in our Summercamp series we invited Furtherfield to develop and lead the day-long symposium, Do It With Others - Art and Solidarity in the Age of Networks. Do It With Others - Art and Solidarity in the Age of Networks explored art as a commons (defined as the cultural and natural resources accessible to all members of a society) in the age of networks and neoliberalism. It asked how practices, circulation, appreciation and stewardship of the arts can be emancipated for all.

The day was devised and led by Furtherfield (Ruth Catlow and Marc Garrett) with contributions from artists Gretta Louw and They Are Here (Helen Walker & Harun Morrison) and writer Tim Waterman. More details of the event can be found here.
