Urban Heritage Activism Conference - TU Berlin / 16-17 March
March 8, 2017
Farah Makki, Architect / Doctor in social Sciences and Co-founder of Urbego will be contributing to the two-day conference on Urban Heritage Activism at TU Berlin. The international conference will focus on heritage ‘from below’–urban history as it is lived, represented and transformed by local communities in diverse geographies and cultures. Speakers from grassroots movements, academic and cultural institutions will address political ramifications and power struggles related to heritage and introduce the failures and solutions of various activism projects, especially in postcolonial contexts. Contributors will debate contemporary tensions and future strategies for interventions through a roundtable discussion at the end of each day.
Join us for an exciting series of lectures and discussions with international guests! The detailed program and information about speakers is available here: www.urbannarratives.org/conferences
