Co-Creating Cohesive Cities : Private View

Co-Creating Cohesive Cities : Private View

Posted on behalf of Christina Horvath, Department of Politics, International Studies and Languages, University of Bath

The exhibition Co-Creating Cohesive Cities experiments with methods combining art and research to address urban inequalities, segregation and stigmatisation in disadvantaged neighbourhoods. It incorporates texts, images and videos from Co-Creation workshops conducted by a group of academics from the University of Bath in collaboration with artists, NGOs, researchers and communities from Europe and Latin-America. It retraces narratives of those living in peripheral communities in Iztapalapa (Mexico City), the favela Santa-Marta (Rio de Janeiro) and Saint-Denis (Greater Paris). Presented as a work in progress, this exhibition showcases outcomes from Co-Creation, a four-year research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 734770. The project involves universities and NGOs in Europe, Mexico and Brazil, including a team of researchers from the University of Bath (departments of PoLIS, Health and Education).

Workshop ‘Disrupting the whitewashed City': Wednesday 20th March 5:00 - 7:00pm

This workshop will introduce co-creation and familiarise participants with the project’s sites and methodologies through a participative collage activity which will aim to disrupt whitewashed narratives of Bath to draw attention on the city’s inequalities. It will use comparisons with remote cities to reflect on the concepts of the cohesive city, prejudice, disadvantage and stigmatisation to share views on and visions for Bath as a cohesive city. Participants are encouraged to bring their own drawings, photographs or newspaper cutting. Other materials and refreshments will be provided.
