Part research tool and part forum,  A Public Resource transformed Cubitt Gallery into the setting for the dissemination and support of progressive ideas and nonconformist energies. Featuring a reading and research room, and a comprehensive, weekly programme of talks, events and screenings, the project focuses on giving a platform and space to grass roots political movements, activists, individuals and artists who were, in their own ways, campaigning for social, cultural or political change.
