In the cultural arena, as we live through an era of austerity, staying where we are might become a productive form of occupation, a new measure of success. Freed from the imperative always to move forward, standing still and taking stock gives us the opportunity to appreciate where we have come from and what we actually have. This vocational desire can also be infused with a heightened appreciation of the modest and local.
In the company of award-winning writers, thinkers, musicians, film-makers and artists, ‘Occupation’ will consider the rich variations on this theme, taking in readings, screenings, discussion and installation.
This year we are also delighted to premiere a series of new commissions, ‘Stay Where You Are’, responding to the theme by artist Jem Finer, poet Lavinia Greenlaw, essayist Jay Griffiths and film-maker Ben Rivers. Produced in collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella, they are funded by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
Important change to programme: Ray Davies (2 February) event cancelled
Please note that since the Spring brochure was printed, we have learned that Ray Davies is unable to perform at PLACE on 2 February. The cost of the weekend pass has therefore been adjusted to £40 and includes tickets to all events except the walk.
