As part of a City Galley exhibition “I will talk with anybody who will talk with me” (A series of performances/installations/conversations, named after this footage from a news piece on the anti-university of London in 1968) The Third University will be doing something in the space (which looks a bit like a den you’d build when you were small) at the front of the LCB Depot on the 9th of August (5pm onwards).
There will be a little bit of learning from Eric Rosoman (the exhibition coordinator) on some of the pieces in the space – followed by hopefully an interesting discussion about the spaces in Leicester for doing stuff. The Third University is aware that although the council have their own managers for arranging and talking about things to do in spaces, much of it is from a top-down, business orientated perspective. This is about reclaiming, re-appropriating and hacking the city. It would be nice if we could talk about what we might do in the autumn term. You have an idea, a thing that you are good at or something that we should be teaching, we would like to help you find things to learn, but also have a place and a space to do it- even if it is or never needs to be permanent. This is what this discussion/talky thing will be about.
The lesson will follow after by a trip to the pub. There will be more details about logistics later – but please do keep the 9th of August open- and let us know if you’ll be there. Either on twitter -or leave a comment here.
