“Not unlike census takers (we’ve got clipboards, sashes, and serious looking forms to fill out), members of the Council arrive in a neighbourhood and begin knocking on doors with the intention of registering what one neighbour has to say to the next. The Council invites participants to become temporary members by participating in a two-hour version of this playful but politically engaged project, which attempts to establish dialogue within a community.”

Depending on the day you sign up to join the Council you may find yourself bussed to places beyond the city centre, including Balsall Heath, Edgbaston and Perry Bar.

During the past decade Rushton and Moschopedis have collaboratively developed an exciting catalogue of community-specific and participatory works in offsite contexts. The utilization of public space, participation, intervention, performance, and crafting to interrogate local day-to-day life has been primary to their practice.
