Disrupting The Streetscape

Disrupting the Streetscape is a daylong discovery as part of Open School East’s series of interventions, research and building days to create an float for Margate Carnival.

The artist and academic Ruth Potts will lead a radical Margate walk, allowing time for plenty of discussion and platforms for people’s own memory and thoughts about the townscape.

Beyond this we will consider walking as a radical practice, psychogeography, forms of street level intervention and collaborative mapping.   The day of disruption will also question Clone Town Britain and the relational activity behind the facades and why that matters going forwards.

Ruth Potts is a co-founder of bread, print & roses; a collective engaged in seditious pamphleteering, radical walking and anarchist baking. She teaches on the MA in Ecological Design Thinking at Schumacher College and was artistic adviser to Utopia 2016. Previously, Ruth was Campaign Organiser for the Great Transition at nef (New Economic Foundation). She is the co-author of The New Materialism and a co-author of nef’s Clone Town Britain reports.
