The Temporary Centre For Resistance

17 January – 31 March  2019


The Temporary Centre for Resistance (The Temp) is a two-month residency and collaboration between Precarious@KentUni and Studio Three Gallery. The Temp is a space of resistance within the body of the university, resistance through radical community building and by claiming a sense of individual ownership over the spaces we work in. The gallery is used for activism, art production, temporary exhibitions, a regular yoga and movement class, lectures, performances, film-screenings, reading groups, and workshops.

In addition to a daily Lunch at The Temp (where anyone is welcome to drop in, eat your lunch, chat to current members and maybe even take a cheeky nap) here is this week’s (18 – 22 March) programme for events at the Temporary Centre for Resistance:
