Pop up to Grown Up_01_-03


In this special one-off event, Matzine takes over SIDESHOW for a night of lively debate. A line-up of expert contributors will debate the topic of ‘meanwhile’ spaces and the role they play in regeneration. Who do these short-term projects serve? Are they in the public interest? And what is left behind once they disappear?  The debate and themes that emerge on the night will form the content for Matzine #14 Renaissance, to be released in early 2018.
