Artist Jeremy Deller is keynote speaker at this event exploring situated practice, contemporary art, architecture and urbanism.

The first event in a three-part series collaboration between the Folkestone Triennial 2017 and University College London. The series brings together practitioners and thinkers at three 'edge' locations connected by the High Speed 1 railway to consider creative place-making, arts-led urbanism, and the use of interstitial spaces in the city.

For this first event, we consider Bloomsbury and King's Cross as 'edge' locations. The Gower Street campus of UCL was planned and built on the urban/rural edge of nineteenth-century London , a 'learning' gateway through which generations of students have now passed, and one which now runs up against the King's Cross development, conceived as a mix of ‘knowledge gateway’ with transport gateway.
