CRITICAL CITIES VOL 4 | ORDER NOW

The 4th Critical Cities: Ideas, Knowledge and Agitation might be our most challenging Volume yet.

Written with passion and brio from many disciplines, Critical Cities is an unequivocal challenge to status quo understandings of cities. Collectively, the contributors offer a thought-provoking and head-on confrontation with the Urban Industry – in three sections 'The Urban Industry: Mass Death, Theft and Impoverishment';  ‘The Robbed World & The Making of Modern Cities’ and ‘How To Empty A City’.

REVIEWS| TINAG FESTIVAL 2014

On 1 & 2 November 2014 we held our final festival at the Bishopsgate Institute.

Thank you to everyone who took time to give us their feedback on TINAG2014! 

"The framework I found to be uniquely ambitious and challenging - quite unlike any other 'cities' themed conference programs I have heard about or attended. It was refreshing to hear critical perspectives, voiced often by people directly representing groups who would either not usually get a hearing at such an event, or who would be spoken for."

 5TH & FINAL TINAG FESTIVAL | PHOTOS

 

"... the conversations were great and a lot more varied than I see in activist spaces. Themes around decolonisation, structural racism, prison abolition were great and thought-provoking."

The 5th and final Festival was without a doubt, our strongest programme and we are honoured to have worked with such insightful, critical and productive people! Critical Cities Vol 5 will build on the work in the Festival (pub 2016).
