In his book, »Citymakers: The Culture and Craft of Practical Urbanism«, Cassim Shepard argues that it’s not just the top-down planners, architects and elected officials and bottom-up community groups that shape our cities, but the large group in between.
The talk will introduce some of the lesser known characters whose work falls outside of the dichotomy of the powerful and the powerless. The audience is invited to consider various modes of engagement with the potential to make our cities more sustainable, resilient and just.
