Performance Inside/Outside/Inside: It’s Public, Dammit!

Inside/Outside/Inside © Inside/Outside/Inside



Inside/Outside/Inside (I/O/I) is a 30-minute virtual walking tour powered by the magic of screensharing. Each month, a new group of tour guides are given a prompt — Which buildings need to be destroyed, or created? Or, where would you install an outdoor shower? Our tour guides then take our Zoom audience on a five-minute tour via Street View, Bing Maps, and tab hopping.

For the next edition of Inside/Outside/Inside, our virtual tour guides will take us to so-called private spaces (or public-private, private-private-public, or whatever useless jargon McKinsey uses these days). They’ll walk us through how we can reimagine them as what they are — places for the people.

This event will take place online over Zoom - please RSVP to participate.
