Parade: public modes of assembly and forms of address

Before Parade, there was a Panopticon

We have a longstanding interest in public goods, spaces, services and knowledge, and a track record of producing original participatory events, like 2004's Open Congress at Tate. We collaborated with Kuba Szreder, a freelance curator from Warsaw, on an international series of events exploring the contested and increasingly relevant topic of Being in Public.

Parade was hosted in the beautiful Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground at Chelsea College of Art and Design, opposite Tate Britain in central London – 4 minutes from the Houses of Parliament

We explored different conceptions of Being in Public - historical, cultural, political, social, architectural and digital.

We produced a landmark event, and a stunning, bespoke structure in an amazing public location with a host of international contributors. Parade consisted of a series of Barcamps and a Market of Ideas, all unfolding in a specially constructed architectural environment. Our modes of assembly and forms of address are intimately bound.

We aim to embrace the disagreeable, contentious, messy, inefficient, live, improvisatory and provisional nature of Being in Public. Public, common or shared resources are like muscles, they become stronger with exercise.
