To kickstart the season, N.A.W. host Drawing the Edge to the Centre #2, in response to their first event held in July 2019. We want to go even further and push this conversation beyond the geographical and towards the personal and theoretical. To get into the uncomfortable truth of labour in relation to architectural production and making. To critically examine the movement of language that has historically belonged to the ‘edge’ (like the word ‘decolonisation’). If architecture’s intimate relationship with power is essential to its realisation, what does a decolonised architectural practice look like?
Join Nasra Abdullahi, Nana Biamah-Ofosu and the panel of invited guests as we discuss the relationship between edge and centre. Come with your questions, let’s talk!
