Civic University
Historically a civic university was the term given to a university devised to tend to a particular civic need - an institution created for the development of teaching and learning of a (predominately industrial) discourse. However a more contemporary understanding of this term is to think about the increasing ‘need’ for universities’ to actively engage with their locality; to be successful and resilient.

Refuge, The Subaltern & Urban Space

Start: Sep 20, 2016 6:00:00 PM

Rebel Space Pavillion at the Brixton Design Trail
Brixton is an urban space that has been uniquely defined by the movement of subaltern groups. Issues around identity, race and nationhood can all be explored and exemplified in Brixton’s history. For this reason it provides the perfect setting to learn, discuss and question the role of subaltern groups in modern urban space and indeed the subaltern itself. How, today, are these groups re-defining the cities they live in and how in turn is the city re-defining them?

Turning Tables website
In the modern age planners have considered citizens as consumer-users. On the contrary, a convivial society has the power to make its habitat and its tools. A convivial community is a community of makers. In a post-industrial age the convivial tools are useful to maximise the resilience of communities because they make possible a kind of production not linked to enforced consumption. The Convivial City is a paradigm to address the work of community in a scenario of laboratory_city.
