As part of the UCU pensions strike in spring 2018, onMonday 26 February, from 9am-12: outside 22 Gordon Street, on the picket line itself, running in parallel with a sign-making workshop, Joanne Preston, Rachel Tyler, and Lili Zarzycki and I hosted a ‘strike-writing’ workshop inviting people to ‘Join us to read and write words from strikes and picket-lines past, present and future. Bring quotes and poems to read aloud, and writing implements to pen and tweet your own strike-writing’. Positioning site-writing as an intervention into the space of the picket line, and the tensions between being inside or outside a university building at a time of strike, I see this site-writing workshop as a form of critical spatial practice.
