This workshop invites participants from social and spatial disciplines to explore how acts of resistance and negotiation are fundamental to imagining cities in common for people with lived experience of displacement, migration and exile. In collaboration with the Woman, Life, Freedom activist group based at the Bartlett (UCL), participants will develop tools for analysing the urban landscape as a backdrop to event and situation based forms of resistance.
This is the first day of a 3-day series of participatory action-based responses to London’s built environment, organised by ASF-UK with ‘Woman, Life, Freedom Collective’, ‘Resolve Collective’ and 'Afterparti'. Centred around the themes of subversion, dissent, space and power, the workshops will address the following question:
How are acts of resistance and negotiation creating spaces of common ground for people with lived experience of displacement, migration and exile in London today?
The workshops will generate spaces for reflection on participants' own practices and experiences of making and inhabiting spaces of common ground, and asking what more could be done to support such spaces in the city.
See below for details on the other two workshops.
