Call for Abstracts: Urban Heritage Activism
16-17 March 2017, Berlin, Germany
“The main focus is urban heritage, understood in the broad sense of the term –buildings, cultural practices, artistic inquiries, archives –considered especially in postcolonial contexts. Questions of architectural preservation, ‘shared’ heritage and the role of institutions, and most importantly: looking at responses ‘from below’ (community activism) are key topics, but we encourage applicants from all disciplines to apply.
Simulizi Mijini is an exchange program organised by the Habitat Unit (TU Berlin), chair for international urbanism and design, in collaboration with Ardhi University (Dar es Salaam, Tanazania), Zentrum fuer Kunst und Urbanistik (Berlin), Nafasi Art Space (Dar).”
Deadline: 18 December 2016.
