Close Proximity was a two day NAN event organised by Helen Sloan, from SCAN and Jonathan Swain, an artist from Brighton.

Programme:

"Can anything of any cultural significance survive the Ballardian wipe down sprawl that has infected the South East of England? How are artists responding as a consequence? Have other forms of networks sprung up; survival strategies, pockets of resistance, gang culture, out of town developments? Are these satisfactory? How is this affecting art and the creative industries?" (courtesy SCAN site)

Abstract:

Presentation exploring the dilemmas and opportunities available to artists who elect to engage with architectural development.

Subsequent to the conference, a paper was comissioned by AN to further explore the issues raised for the website and print publication.  Public Art & Compromise.
