Event description

Description

How do girls experience the urban environment? Not the same way boys do.

White Arkitekter invites you to experience the city from a girl’s perspective through a piece of street theatre. Following two teenage girls as they navigate the streets of Shoreditch, you will get an insight into how the urban environment both constricts and sets them free.

The absence of girls in the urban planning process creates a knowledge gap, resulting in public spaces that exclude. To create cities that are inclusive and socially sustainable, this fundamental issue must change.

Places for Girls is a research project White Arkitekter undertook to find out how to create better places for girls in the city. Designed as an art project, a multi-disciplinary team – including girls from a Stockholm youth council – collaborated to answer questions around identity and equity. The project used a piece of theater to communicate the results.

Originally set in the streets of Stockholm, White Arkitekter and theatre company Unga Tur are now bringing an abridged version of the piece to the London Festival of Architecture. Headphones will be provided.

Following the performance, White Arkitekter plus special guests facilitate a session on identity and urban equity in the practice’s studio.
