On the 15 and 16 of August, Amateur Cities ran a workshop at Strelka Institute, called A New Vocabulary - How to talk about Urbanism, based on the format we developed for the UrgentCity project. It was great to see how the meaning of words changes in different geographical and socio-political context and have a bit of insight on what young people in Moscow think about urbanism.
New Generations and Amateur Cities are pleased to introduce UrgentCity: Towards a New Vocabulary of Terms. Our project has been selected as one of the 5 winning projects in the open call "Sfide Urbane" of the Olandiamo Programme of the Dutch Embassy in Italy. UrgentCity is a research project and program of activities that invites experts from various disciplines and citizens to join forces in order to create a new vocabulary of terms for city making.
