This lecture will take place in the Framework of the course DES-3369: Spaces of Solidarity. The course aims at examining community-driven spaces and spatial processes that pool and share resources to build social cohesion in times of crisis or absence of government, at a variety of scales, places, and contexts. It also attempts to explore environments of community formation and open up a dialogue on the agency of design in enacting and facilitating actions of solidarity.
The lecture is hosted by MDes Risk & Resilience and course DES-3369: Spaces of Solidarity.
