Radical Theory Forum, June 18th 1.30pm till late,
Institute for Autonomy, 76-78 Gower Street, nearest tube: Goodge Street (Northern Line)
As part of the ongoing seminar series at the Institute for Autonomy(http://instituteautonomy.omweb.org) the Radical Theory Forum returns to the London scene!
The Radical Theory Forum will host daytime workshops/discussions on the theme of 'radical theory', or 'how can theory inform action?', followed by a party with film screenings, spoken word and funky music. There is no strict theme as such, however this event provides an excellent opportunity to discuss the upcoming G8 summit.
the Forum will consist of a series of theory/discussion-based workshops to run from 1.30pm to 8pm, followed by partytime.
