The project serves as an introduction into participatory action research. The participants will investigate how different cultural groups negotiate their identities and sense of place in the contemporary city, and explore potentials of public space and everyday life for creating exchange points between various people and groups. My Place is a university project open to everybody interested in the topic.
Now Urbanism recognizes the rich complexities of the present city not as barriers or obstacles but as grounds for uncovering opportunity and unleashing potential. It views city making as grounded in the imperfect, messy, yet rich reality of the present city and the everyday purposeful agency of its dwellers.
