A symposium to wrap up the City of Ideas series of conversations about urbanism and cultural space. With leading artists, architects, urbanists and public designers. Watch recordings of the talks from the day.
After reopening this summer with the fantastic Points of Rupture exhibition, Site Gallery's doors are once again closed for lockdown. The gallery remains open online, though – in the form of WEB/SITE.
WEB/SITE is an online programme of events and activity. Take part in reading groups, join live workshops for families, and enjoy a selection of films from the gallery's City of Ideas talks programme. You can also find a selection of long reads relating to the programme over on Site Stories.
See the WEB/SITE programme below – come back soon for more!
