Urban Knights is a programme of events, which provokes and promotes practical approaches to urban change. Established in Dublin, this Autumn the programme brings together people who are actively creating alternatives, which reflect or produce disruptions to our given city infrastructures, norms and perceptions.
Acting as a platform for awareness, exchange and dissemination, our urban knights, change agents and citizens present their interventions, projects and programmes. Urban Knights examines is it possible to re-think how we live in the city? If so, what influences change? How do we enable it to happen, what would we do?
Urban Knights places emphasis on practice and real-world situations, rather than theory or hypothesis. At each event speakers present and discuss their work for 10-mins, followed by questions and conversations with the audience. Each event last two hours and in keeping presentations short, the aim is to introduce 1-2 key elements that relate to the work and provide time for meeting the speakers and audience members.
Urban Knights, Berlin will be taking place at BetaHaus on 1 Oct, 5 and 12 Nov, 2013 from 19-21.00.
Booking per event is necessary & places are limited.
