Material Memory: The Post Industrial Landscape as Site for Creative Practice.

Here are a few images from the Material Memory conference, held at Newcastle University on Friday 14 November. The conference programme covered a range of different ways in which the post-industrial environment can be a site for artistic research, intervention and reinterpretation. Speakers represented a broad range of disciplines including contemporary art, geography, architecture and landscape architecture, art history and music. A publication and online documentation will be produced in coming months.
