DX Salon Nights: In Conversation


December 2, 2011
by Canadian Architect

On Thursday, December 8, 2011, the Design Exchange in Toronto hosts another of its Salon Nights, this time featuring interviewer Department of Unusual Certainties, a Toronto-based research and design collective working at the interstices of urban design, planning, public art, spatial research and mapping. The Department’s work is informed by one guiding philosophy – that the city is the physical manifestation of a long sequence of unusual certainties, each one simultaneously more unusual and yet more certain than its predecessor.

The interviewee at this Salon Night is Broken City Lab, an artist-led interdisciplinary creative research collective and non-profit organization working to explore and unfold curiosities around locality, infrastructures, and creative practice leading towards civic change. Broken City Lab’s creative activity is rooted in community-based social practice, where the lab attempts to generate a new dialogue surrounding public participation and community engagement in the creative process, with a focus on the city as both a research site and workspace.

All Salon Nights take place from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at the Design Exchange , located at 234 Bay Street in Toronto.
