Co-curating the city: universities and urban heritage past and future
Time: 11/22/2016 at 9:00 AM
Location: UCL Bloomsbury/ UCL East (Stratford, London)
Workshop: Two site-based, invitation-only workshops at UCL Bloomsbury/ UCL East (Stratford, London) November 22nd and 23rd 2016, and University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg (April 2017). This workshop is the first of two which will explore how universities, as mixed communities of interest dispersed across urban sites, are re-evaluating their institutional identities and heritage in the context of place-based spatial development. They will examine two development initiatives led by UCL and University of Gothenburg, which seek to engage with local people and neighborhoods, and in turn participate in a re-shaping of ideas, narratives, and lived experience of urban heritage for the future. They will further consider the parallels between universities and museums as institutions engaged in the development of new urban imaginaries in postcolonial cities through collaborative processes of co-production with local populations. The workshop is hosted by Clare Melhuish (Urban Lab/ Bartlett Commission for Learning Environments) and Dean Sully (Archaeology)
