Curating night culture

Curating night culture

This event has finished Took place on: Monday, 18th Sep 2017

The closure of Fabric last year led to a cry of public outrage at London’s dwindling nightlife. It has been estimated that London has lost 50 per cent of its night clubs and music venues since 2007.

However, in the past year London has also seen the introduction of the night tube, a dedicated Night Czar, and now the Mayor’s new vision for London as a 24-hour city which calls for the promotion all forms of cultural, leisure and retail activity throughout the night. The built environment is central to the generation and preservation of cultural practices and therefore plays a key role in curating the city's cultural night-life.

An examination of international precedents reveal how other cities have revitalised the scene: from Amsterdam’s pioneering Night Mayor, to Paris’ Nuit Blanche 24-hour art festival. This event will consider the need for new cultural night spaces and how they can, and are, being created in London and beyond.

Bringing together architects, sound experts, and trailblazers of the art world, the panel discussion will take a step further than the conventional notion of night culture as restricted to clubs and bars, to encompass new cultural experiences facilitated by the city at night.

Speakers include:

- Rollo Maschietto, working across Sound Diplomacy’s consulting for the Mayor of London

- Carl Turner, founding director of Carl Turner Architects

More speakers to be announced….

Cost: £12
