A Public Hearing
Conflict & Negotiations Project
2015-16 MA Cohort



In 2016 Arts Catalyst invited MA students from the Centre for Research Architecture to create an evolving urban platform for conducting research and developing imaginative new forms of community building within the Kings Cross area. During the Spring the students run a series of "Public Hearings" organised around key issues that move across these two rapdily changing London neighbourhoods—New Cross & Kings Crss.

The project consisted of fragments of material collected over a two-month period in Kings Cross, London, during which time a series of interviews were conducted with people and institutions local to the area. These accounts and retellings of local history, along with materials generated from three workshop events and several self-initiated walks, were presented in the gallery's two spaces where a recording room with six microphones mirrored a listening room with six speakers.

Events at Arts Catalyst:


1) A Public Hearing

2) Public Hearing: Cromer Street Lyric


3) Public Hearing: How to Speak

4) Public Hearing: Technologies of Belonging
