- Artist talk: Keith James Clarke - Reflections on bright-eyed and bushy-tailed architectureCourse Date: Sat 31 Jul 2021
Location on this date: OnlineKeith is a tutor at City Lit and began his professional life working on multi-million-pound developments for an internationally recognised Cambridge practice. He questions the coherence and quality of some domestic refurbishment, by others, which has motivated him, from the mid-80s onwards, to specialise in designing small-scale residential properties. During this talk, he will explain his work practice, focussing on design generators, their relationship with 3D visualisation and how they aid design development and decision-making. Keith will refer to a couple of examples from his portfolio of work and outline his commitment to creating designs with strong architectural and environmental credentials.

- Fringe, street and festival arts: celebration and participationCourse Date: Sat 14 May 2022
Location on this date: OnlineStreet and/or festival arts have a history that can be traced back thousands of years, either as spontaneous celebrations or highly organised and ceremonial events. Activities of this type often draw on connections to the area, and to specific local and cultural traditions that go back generations, or have been introduced more recently with diasporas of various kinds, and, in so doing, have become part of the local culture and tradition. They can appear largely unplanned, or highly planned, but in either case, as with so much else in the present times, funding and support considerations are important. In this workshop, we look at some of the practical aspects of fringe, street and festival arts, including developing your initial proposal, planning and logistics, working with local authorities, groups and media. We also take a more playful and speculative look, in more general terms, at the possibilities of art and events that engage or surprise the public, considering theoretical interventions or disruptions in the urban environment.
