What Are The Splacists? The World’s First Splacist Training Camp
Conceived and led by splacist Nikki Pugh with Hannah Nicklin at MADE Birmingham November 30th 2011 with Paul Conneally in attendance.

A contemporary mode of practice proposed by Paul Conneally. A new set of ideologies defined by Hannah Nicklin and Nikki Pugh. A hop, skip and a jump away from phsychogeography and the works of the situationist international. Think space, place and splice.
