Vacant possession

A Talk for Time Machine: A Festival of Experimental Time-Based Art:

Thanks to the Serial Space collective (especially Jennifer Hamilton) for organising Time Machine and inviting this talk into the program, and thanks to all who took part in the ensuing discussion. I think there was some energy for intentionally bringing together artist communities and arts advocates with homelessness and housing advocates in discussion about the uses of urban space. There are a number of examples in Sydney’s urban history which might provide inspiration on that front, and in other cities too. I wonder if coalescence of that type could have changed the outcome on Kensington Street?
