Dérive Day 2017 will tie in with the 4th World Congress on Psychogeography, hosted by the University of Huddersfield at Heritage Quay.

For Dérive Day, we will introduce the concept of ‘hosted dérives’; A number of times during the day, you will be able to join a ‘hosted dérive’, where all participants are presented the exact same task cards at exactly the same time, wherever they are in the world.

Stay tuned, keep track of what’s the latest on Dérive Day, here.
