The seminar is part of our flagship independent-learning programme Challenging Practice: Essentials for the Social Production of Habitat, which seeks to enable built environment practitioners to engage both critically and creatively with the challenge of creating fairer cities.
For this special edition, we are collaborating with our Inclusion by Design programme, drawing insights from two pan-European projects exploring designing and learning in the context of migration, as well as from our Finding Common Ground event series at London Festival of Architecture, in collaboration with Women Life Freedom Collective (UCL), Resolve Collective, Thomas Aquilina/Afterparti Collective and disability research collective Dis/.
Approaching inclusion through an intersectional lens, this seminar will use personas, role plays, and scenarios from our own practice to examine methods and tools for centring lived experiences within built environment practice. The seminar will be useful for you if you have a professional interest in the way cities are planned, designed and built and you work in the fields of urban planning, urban design, architecture, visual arts, public performance or other creative disciplines engaging with urban space. We especially welcome participation from practitioners with lived experience of exclusion/inclusion of any form within urban spaces and/or built environment practice.
Participants in the two-day seminar will be awarded a Challenging Practice Stage A certificate and will have priority access to the next Stage B workshop in 2024.
