From 2016-2019, People’s Palace Projects is partnering with our Associate, Professor Lois Weaver, supporting with production aspects of Lois’ Wellcome Engagement Fellowship to experiment and create comfortable spaces for public discussion, such as Long Tables and Porch Sittings, which resist hierarchies, foster inclusion and value lived experience as expertise.

In a period when the nature of ‘the public’ is increasingly contested, Public Address Systems create spaces that are hospitable and open so that alternatives can be modelled and critical questions staged.
