Panel: Trespass and Rewilding
Erik Hannerz, Lucy Finchett-Maddock & Carlo McCormick
If you are interested in attending the event, it is recommended that you reserve your spot. By reserving now, you are guaranteed a place and can have peace of mind knowing you are all set. Nevertheless, a ticket is not required to attend, and we’ll make every effort to squeeze you in. We hope to see you there.
Festival Director Martyn Reed’s initial inspiration for the Festival theme of Rewilding came from Nick Hayes “The Book of Trespass” which reveals a long story of enclosure, gifting of land, exploitation and dispossession of public rights and the commons. Reed sees obvious parallels here with street art and graffiti and their relationship to property rights but also urban art’s ‘trespass’ into conventional fields such as public art and the art establishment.
