Upcoming Expeditions: Exploring London's Infrastructure of Water

Cape Farewell’s SHORTCOURSE / UK is a series of short, rural and urban expeditions that brings emerging artists and art students into dialogue with scientists and leading scientific research in order to stimulate a creative response.

Created by Cape Farewell together with three of the UK's top art schools, University College Falmouth, John Moore's in Liverpool, and University of Arts London colleges Chelsea Camberwell and Wimbledon (CCW), SHORTCOURSE / UK is a surrogate art school of sorts; a place-less cohort comprised of a temporary student body and changing staff of artists, writers and scientists.

On 24, 25 and 26 October 2011, 20 CCW research students embark on three unconventional urban expeditions that explore London's infrastructure of water. Three intense days of presentations, workshops and discussions will frame the climate change debate in some extraordinary environments and will challenge students to take their learning outside of the studios, seminar rooms and lecture theatres.
