| About Furtherfield |
Based in London, UK, Furtherfield is an alternative arts organization and website for exhibition, discussion and critical review with two physical spaces in the heart of Finsbury Park. The Furtherfield Gallery at the McKenzie Pavilion hosts exhibitions and pop-up up events and Furtherfield Commons is a technology and community space for discussions, workshops and informal residencies. Furtherfield believes that through creative and critical engagement with practices in art and technology people are inspired and enabled to become active co-creators of their cultures and societies. Art and technologies play a central role in the way we see and form our societies, and so it is important that programming and productions involve more diverse people at a fundamental level.
