Call for Participation: Webinar “Methods and Assignments to Read, Write and Compose Urban Places”

Working Group 3 is convoking action members interested in taking part in the day-long online webinar, coming April 7, 2021.

In preparation for the next steps of our network, we seek to engage in a thought-provoking discussion about the different methods that can be used to perceive, reflect and transform, or — in literary terms — read, write and compose the city.

Whether art-driven or analytical, in visual or written form, theoretical or participatory, from one or bringing together several disciplines, and with different possible outcomes; we welcome methods and assignments that can be used to perceive, reflect and compose the city, together with evidence of their use in concrete actions that have been (or might be) carried out in existing urban places.

The webinar will assume the format of a Pecha Kucha — a series of very short presentations (6:40 minutes long, up to 20 slides) — grouped in the three proposed themes. Some of the assignments to be discussed that day will be directly selected from the submissions received in the “Repository of Methods” Padlet, yet we still enthusiastically encourage all members to take part!

To participate, please send an email to repositoryofmethods@gmail.comnot later than February 22, 2021, expressing your interest in presenting a method you are acquainted with of have applied for reading, writing or composing the city; and which you would like to share in this webinar. Short abstracts (up to 200 words) and supporting images are welcome but not mandatory.
