As part of ‘The Citizen Cycle’, a collaborative arts programme curated by Michelle Browne as part of the Velo-City International Cycling Conference: ‘Cycling for the Ages’, a 3-day masterclass is offered for 15 producers, artists, designers, architects and community organisers and activists who are interested in working in the built environment. It will be hosted by significant international practitioners: Leticia Lozano, Ryan Swanson, Kate Stewart and Pete Vance.
The masterclass will explore ways to engage with the city to effect change, while looking at methods and approaches to working with city councils and various stakeholders to achieve their aims. The group will look at successful and unsuccessful case studies in cities around the world, through the prism of The Playful City ethos, before developing ideas for Dublin city, and workshopping how these can be achieved, with participants equipped with a realistic work plan at the end of the workshop. The curator and facilitators will introduce participants to Dublin City Council staff, producers and activists who are and have been involved in working with artists and arts organisations to deliver projects in and about the city, while discussing the challenges and opportunities presented by current planning for the future of Dublin’s city spaces.
Please note you must be available to participate for all of the 3 days.
Dates: 29 to 31 May.
