Graffiti Sessions: The art and justice of sociable cities is the title of three days of talks and videos in London from December 3 to 5. How should cities be managing vandalism, graffiti and unsolicited street art? What’s the changing relationships between art, design and crime? Can street art and graffiti regenerate or otherwise revitalise neighborhoods?
Among the speakers are Tom Fuller, Service Delivery Manager, London Overground Rail Operations Ltd; Sean Caulfield, Hodge Jones and Allen, criminal defence solicitors with specialism in graffiti cases; on prosecution, British Transport Police (BTP) Detective Constable Colin Saysell; academic criminologists and designers; and graffiti artists from the UK and overseas.
