Trustmaking - Methods of Co-Research and Co-Creation

explorations of the social-ecological urban transformation and the role of youth as changemakers

In the lecture and tutorial for teamskills we will experimentally explore the sometimes scarce, sometimes plentiful resources we have at hand to approach people, moments and sites of urban transformation. Pooling the knowledge and strategies transdisciplinary teams can provide (e.g. from the social sciences, design, theory, architecture, or planning), we will test and develop site-specific methods for researching and re-imagining dynamic urban conditions and develop a guide to methods of co-reseach and co-creation to be presented at an international winter school at the end of the semester.
