I have been working with Katarzyna Kosmala on a round table event as part the 2 day seminar programme exploring Mashing Up: Curating /Practice. The GoMA round table will involve Women@Play as a project to explore ideas of knowledge exchange as participatory practice. There will also be a chance to hear papers from other people Katarzyna has invited and later I will lead a tour round Blueprint for a Bogey.
