Chelsea College of Art and Design (beside Tate Britain)
16 John Islip Street
London SW1P 4JU

Best to cycle, although public transport options include

Chelsea College of Art and Design has a large contemporary courtyard at its heart: the beautiful Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground. We have collaborated with Polish curator Kuba Szreder to develop a programme of events that will explore the diverse, contested and vital conceptions of being in public.

In a bespoke, temporary structure designed by award-winning Polish architects Ola Wasilkowska and Michał Piasecki - assembled in public - we aim to produce a landmark event in an amazing location with a host of international contributors.

Parade will challenge the lazy, institutionalised model of knowledge transfer - in which amplified 'experts' speak at a passive audience. Our modes of assembly, our forms of address and the knowledge we share will be intimately bound.
