Scotland + Venice: Dispatch 8 of 12
One A to Z of Making Connections: Peter MaCaughey
In this dispatch, anti-curator of The Happenstance, Peter McCaughey charts some of the relationships that evolved through The Happenstance, exploring the variety of ways that the project helped weave connections between individuals and organisations, tracing some of the learning around this and also how the space itself became a medium for generating maps, amplifying capacities and encouraging community networking. He considers how important the concept of freespace is to this process of cultivating community in light of the growing privatisation of public space.
The Happenstance / Scotland + Venice: Scotland’s critically acclaimed contribution to the 16th International Architecture exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia 2018. Curated by WAVEparticle.
