Common Place

13 June 2023

18:00 -20:00

In this event five speakers explore personal and embodied experiences of domestic and leisure places. We journey beyond the materiality of these places and reflect upon meanings, dreams, practices and memories. We invite you to explore the ‘so much more’ associated with the places that you encounter every day.

We start at home with Sam Johnson Schlee who encourages us to pay attention to objects in the living room. Then we move on to meet Rebecca May Johnson as she mixes critical thought and recipes in the kitchen. We join Ro Spankie in the study as she investigates the objects in Freud’s desk. Nancy Stevenson takes us outside to consider experiences of ‘out-dwelling’ in wooden huts and sheds. Finally, Karen Fitzsimon takes us onto the allotment where we consider growing food as a way of being.

Questions, refreshments and book signings at the end of the session.
