Reflections on a mobile train conference from Helsinki to Rovaniemi

Figure 2. Helsinki Cantral Station

Dr. Laura Bissell and I travelled north through Finland last year on a ‘mobile train conference’. Our account of the journey is available in Cultural Geographies


Underneath the Arches


Underneath the Arches was a three year project by David Overend at the Arches arts centre in Glasgow. Between 2007 and 2010, a series of site-specific performances aimed to respond to and generate relationships in the site.
