Lucy Livingstone is a visual artist working across video, photography and performance, currently undertaking a practice-led PhD in Visual Art at Northumbria University.  Through immersive walks through sites she seeks out the narratives that shape space, using performance, video and photographic strategies to create a unique response to each site and looking for the tension when histories clash and collide.  Each work aims to illuminate and question the narratives that exist within the space. Her research has taken place in various places including Teeside, the East End of Glasgow and in the American Desert on a derelict WW2 airbase.
Dr Sophie Handler‘s research explores the spatial dimensions of ageing through practice-based works in the public realm. She has written The Fluid Pavement a semi-fictional story about older people’s particular experience of public space and is now working on the real-time implementation of one the fantasies contained within it. Trained in architectural theory, Sophie has taught and applied theory and research through work with muf architecture/art and AAA (Paris).
Dr David Forrest is lecturer in Film Studies in the School of English at the University of Sheffield. His research focuses on issues of place and identity in British realist cinema and television drama, and his latest book is entitled Social Realism: Art, Nationhood and Politics. David also co-leads the Storying Sheffield project with Professor Brendan Stone.

I analyse the dynamic between protest and architecture and explain how legislative parameters come to be effected by the development of a democratic architecture .
