The front and back cover of a magazine. It's in black and white and contains city names across the UK and a series of questions: How peripheral can we go? Who are we doing it for? Who will I have to be today? What is that this town can do really well?

Issue 23 of Art Licks is co-edited by George Vasey and Holly Willats on the theme of peripheries. The issue was developed in response to discussions that emerged from the exhibition The Everyday Political at Southwark Park Galleries. The launch of the magazine coincided with the Art Licks Weekend 2018 programmed around the same topic. 

Through this issue, Art Licks wanted to investigate how positioning on the periphery of the central art structure creates alternative opportunities for working with others through languages of care and support, and find situations for collaboration that are focused on process: on the making and doing.
