A design charrette that explores new approaches to public space and its shared uses in Dublin is taking place as part of Design Week. Teams of students, residents and city employees will work together to propose urban interventions and city services that facilitate community-led initiatives such as temporary art projects, events and other installations.
Around the world, grassroots initiatives are helping to express the needs of urban residents in new ways. Art installations, festivals, markets, book mobiles, health clinics and many other forms of community engagement are popping up in public spaces, and often in temporary, movable structures. By responding to these demonstrations of community priorities, city councils are helping to recognize the needs and hopes of their citizens. How can Dublin celebrate the imagination and vibrancy of its residents?
This is a free event, but pre-booking is necessary. Contact: email@example.com
