summer school 'in-between spaces/places

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipating in or organizing a public lecture/debate


In order to prepare our cities for a long-term post-pandemic recovery, new ways of working, living and learning are to be developed. This summer school aims to explore the potential of in-between spaces/places in this regard. Hybrid spaces, spaces in transition, boundary zones, places that are not (yet) defined, are in a state of becoming, yet to be built… will serve as the main topic and context of encounter throughout our one-week workshops-series. Participants will be involved in field trips, discussions, key-note lectures, co-creation ateliers and will explore the potential of in-between spaces as caring, inclusive and transformative places allowing engaged citizens and professionals to cope with pressing urban challenges in a collaborative manner.

The summer school will offer an experimental playground where diverse urban actors can inspire one another and initiate processes of collaborative city- making. The USquare-site (Etterbeek) serves as our home base. Participants will explore needs and challenges, produce scenarios and tools for working towards desirable urban futures, in and beyond the Brussels context.
