Agora Project by Özge Topçu

An Art Night London 2018 project, supported by SAHA Association, by Faruk Sade Art Foundation and by New Covent Garden Market 

Agora is a participatory site-specific installation project led by Turkish artist Özge Topçu. It is inspired by the idea of the marketplace - arguably one of the most organic urban landscapes in history. The project is a part of Art Night London 2018. On 7th of July, Agora will be visited by a great number of the Art Night London audience (75,000 visitors in 2017) who will experience the space which we have created in our venue, New Covent Garden Market. 

The artist will engage with the local community through a series of workshops in which she will ask the participants to come up with designs for alternative public spaces which can be built from one of the key components of the market place – the market box. 

After the structure is built we will have snacks for the participants and have discussions around this new public space, considering its temporality. 

The aim of this participation is going to give ownership of the urban landscape back to local residents, to empower the participants and ask them, and the audience, to consider their role in building the urban landscape of the future.
