The Festival prioritises lived knowledge/experience; the proposals of the oppressed, robbed, overlooked and the fighter/warrior and anything by anyone that critically challenges the status quo understanding of ‘cities’.

CRITICAL CITIES| VOLUME 3


The ideas, knowledge and agitation, from the festival, are brought together in the Critical Cities books

Order now (£20.99 including post) and your copy will be with you by the end of the week!

"This collection explicitly and honestly wears its politics on its sleeve, a necessary counterpoint to the political disavowal or equivocation of too many urban actors. The exhilaration in the book lies in the stories told and in their transformative potential." 
Professor Jeremy Till, author of Architecture Depends

PURCHASE |'The Queen vs Trenton Oldfield'

"In 2012, Trenton Oldfield rose to fame for interrupting the Oxford-Cambridge boat race in a public protest against elitism and inequality. After political intervention, Oldfield was sentenced to six months in prison, which this book – published to help pay for legal costs – describes with passion, insight and a rare openness. In part systemic critique, in part a warm description of his fellow prisoners, this is a hugely thought-provoking (and surprisingly funny) piece of writing. A must-read for those who put him there."  

Tom Jeffreys, Wild Cultures
