Symposium – MSFAC residency @ Edible Eastside, a response to Cathy Wade’s ‘Beyond The Pale’ . MSFAC – an investigation into the nature of territories, boundaries, walls, communities and areas.
We met to watch a film at the M.A.C. (Midlands Arts Centre) at 6pm and had a short meeting afterwards to finalise plans for our event in October which will be an afternoon of films and discussion on the crises of capitalism and the effects of the marketisation of education and how we can create new spaces to live and learn. We watched a documentary called Nostalgia for the Light (part of the human rights film festival)
