DPU to fund sponsorship for 10 applicants to new DPU summerLab in Hargeysa
13 June 2019
The scholarships will be provided with the support of Redsea Cultural foundation based in Hargeysa
The DPU summerLab team is happy to announce a number of ten sponsorships for the DPU summerLab in Hargeysa. The DPU, with the support of the Redsea Cultural Foundation, will provide sponsorship to ten participants to support their participation in the DPU summerLab Hargeysa workshop. Redsea are based in Hargeysa, and maintain a busy schedule of cultural and development-related events through the year, including the region’s largest cultural event, the Hargeysa International Book Fair.
Please check the DPU summerLab webpage for more details on the sponsorship and how to apply.
The Hargeysa summerLab will focus on understanding local cultural forms in an urban context substantially altered by past conflict and climate crisis. It will encourage participants to explore ways that pastoralist and contemporary customs can be retained in a manner that contributes to a positive urban identity in the current period. This will extend to an examination of the ways urban space can be used to encourage social cohesion even where local custom tends to favour the compound dwelling secured behind walls or other barriers. The summerLab will encourage this exploration using a co-working approach, that seeks to bring local and international urbanists together in a dialogue that culminates with the presentation of innovative and exploratory ideas on how Hargeysa might best serve its residents.
Please notice the DPU, with the support of Redsea Cultural foundation, will provide sponsorship to ten participants to support their participation to the DPU summerLab in Hargeysa.
