London 2012 Never Took Place: Re-imagining the Olympic zone
When

The third broadcast in a series made during LONDON 2012 NEVER TOOK PLACE: Re-imagining the Olympic Zone.
This ongoing project explores the 2012 Olympic site and the Lower Lea Valley as a context for interdisciplinary research and artistic intervention. The event took place at various venues near the Olympic site in Stratford and included performances by Mark Wayman, a symposium moderated by Iain Sinclair and Nick Couldry and a sound installation by Richard Crow. The title London 2012 never took place: Re-imagining the Olympic zone is intended as a provocation – a kind of thought experiment. If we could imagine for a moment that the Olympics were not happening, what could the place be like? What is its potential beyond established blueprints? What would result if we re-imagined the site’s future unfolding from the ground up rather than the top down? We aim to keep the question open, bringing the possibility of creative intervention to bear on the ethical and political questions raised by the re-development of the Olympic zone. With contributions by Katy Andrews, Tim Butler, Julian Cheyne, Bruce Jerram, Simon Niziol, Martin Slavin, Julie Sumner and others.
