Critical Failure Unconference


Event Status

Who reviews the reviewers? While staff critics are an endangered species, there’s a flourishing critical culture online. With thriving comments and discussion around their reviews and interviews, blogs are variously the great hope for criticism or the reason for its demise. And while online pundits are becoming influential their pay packets online remain more virtual rather than actual.

Following our week of Critical Failure, this unconference of bloggers and online writers looks at the discussion of books, film, theatre and visual arts that is creating a new world of cultural commentators. In this invitation-only event, we’re bringing together independent bloggers to swap stories from the new frontier of critical culture.

This event is facilitated by Trampoline.
