Join us for Precinct, a 'one off' reading group exploring urban matrixes and rural existence.

Artist and researcher Gwen Dupré leads a one off reading group based on her current research project on the human interaction and exchange with natural and urban environments. Participants will work through texts from various genres; with extracts from Octavia E. Butler, Ursula K. Le Guin and Alasdair Gray as well as non-fiction sources and pop culture references. The texts are provided in a take-home zine-style booklet and discuss themes of chaos and control in the city and means of escape. The session will encourage reflection on what it means to be a ‘citizen’ and to ‘belong’.
