Public Discussion: Networks (cells & silos)


Wednesday 16 March, 2011
5.00 – 6.30 pm
Nikos Papastergiadis, Nicholas Mangan, Philip Chubb, Ann Nicholson and Geraldine Barlow.

How do networks in journalism, independent media, science and artistic practice contribute to public knowledge and interaction?
How might we connect and transform the multiple personal small worlds in which we live, with our shared larger world?
Join us for a panel discussion exploring these questions and others raised by the exhibition NETWORKS (cells & silos).
