Life on the outskirts: Making sense and use of a creative life symposium

How do creative people respond to personal and other archive collections?

This public event brings together two artists exhibiting in the house of another, artist Dora Gordine, whose studio home, Dorich House, is a museum managed by Kingston University. The dialogue between each figure is explored in this symposium, and the place of past artefacts within a forward-looking practice. Life on the outskirts is drawn from the collaborative project between the Helen Storey foundation and Kingston University.

Helen Storey is a celebrated social artist and designer whose career began at Kingston Polytechnic as a student in the fashion department. After working for major Italian fashion houses and establishing a highly successful fashion business in her name, she now works on public projects that exist in the spaces between design, science, technology, art and the sustainability of creative human practice in contemporary life.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
