Becky Beinart and Mat Trivett (Wasteland Twinning Project); Jennie Syson (Hinterland) and Emma Cocker (Urban Retreat / Manual for Marginal Places).
This lecture explores three different projects that deal with specific marginal sites as their point of provocation. Drawing on the experiences of these projects, invited speakers interrogate the critical and creative potential of the wastleand or 'edgeland', addressing notions of liminality, classification and questions around the social, ecological and cultural value of the marginal landscape.
