Description

Keynote lecture: Christine Gaspar, Centre for Urban Pedagogy, New York

Date: 8 May 2018 18:30-20:00

Location: The Bartlett, Room G.12, 22 Gordon Street, London.


Keynote lecture by Christine Gaspar director of the Centre for Urban Pedagogy, New York. "The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) is a nonprofit organization that uses the power of design and art to increase meaningful civic engagement. CUP projects demystify the urban policy and planning issues that impact our communities so that more individuals can better participate in shaping them. CUP projects are collaborations of art and design professionals, community-based advocates and policymakers, and our staff. Together we take on complex issues—from the juvenile justice system to zoning law to food access—and break them down into simple, accessible, visual explanations"


This keynote lecture is part of the symposium "Urban Rooms, Civic Schools & City Learning. Past, Present and Future".

One-day symposium at UCL to discuss the past, present and future of ‘urban rooms’ and ‘civic schools’ in the UK to inform the vision for UCL’s Urban Room at its new campus in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford. This event brings together practitioners and thinkers of different generations who have worked engaging people with their surroundings in order to discuss further action. It will uncover their history, discuss its current iterations and explore future possibilities.

Tickets are free but registration is mandatory.
