Furtherfield Editorial – Platforming Finsbury Park.

This time it's public! What will it take for us to regain trust in social spaces online? We think public spaces have a role to play. Let's transform the park into a public platform for cultural adventure, art you can play with, social invention and reflection. By Ruth Catlow and Marc Garrett.

"As Manuel Castells famously put it ‘The flows of power generate the power of flows, whose material reality imposes itself as a natural phenomenon that cannot be controlled or predicted… People live in places, power rules through flows’. And in network society these flows often have the power to wash clean away communities’ ties, extracting value and flowing it to the private interests of absent and distant persons and bodies."
