Blank Slate, A London Event

Everyone has a theory of human nature. That behavior is caused by thoughts and feelings. We fill out this theory by introspecting on our own minds assuming that our fellows are like ourselves and by watching people’s behavior and filing away generalizations.

Watch this theory re-interpreted again and again at Central Saint Martins’ latest festival “Blank Slate” performed by final year students, starting later this month.

The festival is free (as all art should be), see the schedule below:
