Royal College of Art, May 2017

Is there space for activism within our institutions?

Does the institution act like an ivory tower? Who decides what gets in or out, who can infiltrate, who has access? Is there space within the institution for activism, and is activism a viable profession?

This day and night event was organised to challenge privilege and representation within academic institutions, celebrating the work of proactive people and creative projects that question the norm.
