A programme spanning three weeks will offer participants from home and abroad the opportunity to explore cutting edge contemporary culture in London, as well as providing a taster of the Consortium’s programme and faculty research. Participants will attend classes featuring leading figures from the disciplines of art, architecture, film, history, literature and fashion. These will be complemented by site visits to key cultural institutions and landmarks in London, as well as evening events, exhibition openings and film screenings.

Artists, curators, writers and designers will give presentations to participants. From commercial galleries to alternative spaces, artists’ studios, auction houses and fashion ateliers, participants will have a privileged view of what is happening at the moment in the city.

Down and Dirty in London explores all things dirty and forbidden in the metropolis, uncovering the subterranean city. Transport, infrastructure, waste management, hygiene, burial rituals and the occult will all be surveyed. The course will present an fresh take on London and its hidden histories. Site visits may include London cemeteries and the Cabinet War Rooms.
