The Guild and the Garret: A Resilients Salon

A Resilients Salon with Dougald Hine and Ben Vickers

Writer and collapsonomist Dougald Hine hosts a conversation about how we make a living and support each other in times of precariousness and disruption. As artist-in-transience with The Resilients Project, he is exploring the possibilities of guild-like structures of mutual aid as a strategy for resilience. Dougald will be joined by his regular co-conspirator, Ben Vickers, who has been part of the Temporary School of Thought, the Really Free School and The University Project, and is currently developing a Professional (Reality) Development Programme for arts students at Brighton University.

Resilients Salons are conversations about cultural resilience in its many forms. Every salon hosts a guest who engages participants in a discussion about a resilience-related topic, such as long-term thinking, augmented gardening or disaster drills. The atmosphere is casual to inspire participation of everyone involved, accompanied with thematic food and drinks. The salons are a part of the pan-European Resilients Project where six organisations speculate on and experiment with possible futures.


This Resilients Salon is a part of Springcamp 2012 - System Error: in times of crisis, artists take a stand. Springcamp is organised and hosted by Timelab, in collaboration with Argos, Vooruit, Beursschouwburg and FoAM.

With the support of the Culture Programme (2007–2013) of the European Union and the Flemish Authorities.
