Creative Voucher Scheme
Motiroti and City University
Tim Jones, Motiroti
Professor Clive Holtham, City University London
In 2013 Motiroti launched phase one of multipliCities, their concept for a series of artist led walking tours made accessible to the public via smart phone technologies. This Creative Voucher Scheme collaboration placed Motiroti’s Tim Jones in contact with Professor Clive Holtham of Cass Business School in order to launch phase two, a period of action research that would look into a future partnership between Motiroti and the Runnymede Trust, and work to evolve the multpliCities project exploring concepts of interculturalism.
After changing the collaborations name from Excursions to Walking Journeys and Knowledge the project ran a series of events designed for artists, researchers, software designers and urban explorers. A total of six event were held across one week:
1. Walking Journeys & Knowledge: an Indisciplinary Approach – an academic seminar with a keynote from Nick Papdimitriou, an author alternatively known as the London Perambulator.
The week of activities saw 150 participants, 20 exhibitors and 15 speakers. A short video documentary was composed by Cass PhD research Mariana Bogdanova.
