Lunch Hour Lecture: Skateboarding and the City

Lunch Hour Lecture: Skateboarding and the City
 
  1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Skateboarding is at once a sport, a culture and a way of life. Creative, physical, graphic, urban and controversial, it is full of seeming contradictions – a billion-dollar global industry and Olympic sport which still retains a vibrant, critical and counter-cultural heart.

In this talk, and accompanied by video clips, Iain Borden relates the history of skateboarding from the 1960s surf beaches of California through the swimming pools and skateparks of the 1970s through to the later episodes of street-skating and engagements with cities, entrepreneurship, artistry and social enterprises.

Cost: Free of Charge
