Nutopia Symposium - Exploring the Metropolitan Imagination

2nd - 3rd April 2009, Morgan Arcade, Cardiff.

Nutopia crosses boundaries between town planners and artists, activists and architects, social/workers, regeneration agencies and academics to create a compelling new conversation on the 21st Century City.

With speakers from across the UK, Europe and beyond, Nutopia explores ways in which we can reinvent our cities, challenging the idea that city centres are purely spaces of consumption. Instead we look at possibilities for non-economic exchange and examine tensions between resistance and commodification and how this impacts our personal lives.

Nutopia will look at the creation and ownership of cities in the face of privatisation and the language of regeneration. It will look beyond physical space, exploring place as a perceptual landscape informed by a linguistic architecture.

The programme includes presented papers, practitioner-led discussion, plus a range of workshops, events and encounters.

Tickets to the event are priced at £50. This includes lunch on Thursday and Friday and dinner on Thursday evening.

There is also a reduced price available to unwaged/ artist/ freelance workers.To apply for this contact Paula by email [email protected]

Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disapointment.
