London, UK: Made Possible by Squatting Call-out for Submissions

Made Possible by Squatting seeks submissions for an exhibition in September 2013 and an on-line archive that celebrate how squatting has positively affected the lives of individuals & communities in London.

Against the back-drop of the criminalisation of squatting Made Possible by Squatting is looking for work that depicts or embodies a particular chosen experience, movement, space or place in relation to squatting.

The story you choose to tell could be your own, or a history you want to investigate and share.

It could be current or historic – a huge chapter in the life of a community, or a tiny forgotten moment in time, extraordinary or quite ordinary.

The format is completely open – works can be sculptural, photographic, print based, archive materials, workshops, performance, digital, video, audio, temporary or permanent…

The project is able to allocate some small funds for materials and time to those involved, and it is for this reason that we need written proposals of no more than 350 words, with supporting images of previous work (if possible). See the full call-out at

>> The submission deadline for proposals is 6pm Friday 12th July 2013.

For more details about the submission process and application, please email:  info [at] madepossiblebysquatting [dot] co [dot] uk

// Criminalisation of Squatting is Happening Now!

After a brief and undemocratic passage through the Houses of Parliament, Section 144 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill became legislation in September 2012, making living in a squatted residential building a criminal offence in the UK.

Following this, a few politicians are pushing to criminalise squatting in non-residential property, something that wasn’t covered in the first bill.

Made Possible by Squatting seeks to ask what have we already lost, and also what can be found, uncovered and re-ignited?
