London and the South East
London was one of the global centres of pioneering print, with its publications – Time Out, Oz, International Times, Black Dwarf and others – becoming iconic titles in the Movement. In this unique event, Tony Elliott, founder and owner of Time Out, which started in August 1968, will be joined by Marsha Rowe, founder of Spare Rib, John Hoyland, a regular contributor to Tariq Ali's Black Dwarf, to examine the life and legacy of a publishing revolution , along with Barry Miles, writer, biographer and founder of International Times and Indica. Part of the counter culutre ethos was to get people set up and organised, and even suggested people to set up record shops. Record shops/book shops/boutiques all flowered in 1968/69 as part of the new freedoms - thus '68 was not just anti-war/radical politics but a new spirit of entrepreneurship and choice.
