Diaspore is an exhibition and participatory project space which focuses on ideas of ecology(ies), ecosystems and their communities. This year's programme, 'Friche Broadcasts', is explored through 6 modules: Mycelium, Hearing, Nervous system, Electric field, Airborne and Genetic transfer - looking at plant communication as a metaphor for social interaction. The events are led by artists, designers, scientists, chefs, community groups and all who wish to get involved.
Friche is an art and design Studio working towards the conception of eco-structures for urban communities. Our philosophy is to intervene in spaces with the potential for transformation, working within existing parameters to create a new epicenter for the community; this new platform can then be used as an educational, recreational and discursive environment.
