Studio Voltaire
1a Nelsons Row, SW4 7JR London, United Kingdom
During this reading group, artist collective They Are Here will facilitate a discussion around six lectures delivered by Michel Foucault, while he was teaching at Berkeley in Autumn 1983.

‘The expression “fearless speech” is a rough translation of the Greek parrhesia, which designates those who take a risk to tell the truth; the citizen who has the moral qualities required to speak the truth, even if it differs from what the majority of people believe and faces danger for speaking it.’

During this first reading group, we will focus on Chapter 1.

About Precarity Centre:

Precarity Centre is an experiment in social space, seeding interaction between local precarious groups, the arts community and those who work in the public sector.

The project, organised by They Are Here, echoes the multi–layered activities of community centres, which continue to suffer disinvestment across London and the wider UK. Precarity Centre is intended to be relevant to local concerns, whilst bridging diverse forms of inquiry and knowledge.

The programme will include live music, all–abilities movement workshops, self-defence classes, and discussions on housing, mental health and economics.

All activities are free and open to all.
