Event Details

Vancouver is full of built environments that are the result of urban planning, grassroots community place-making, and sometimes a bit of both. Depending on their histories, consultation processes, and the intention behind the project, these built environments can be spaces of inclusion for some and exclusion for others.

Inspired by our exhibition with artist Yao Jui-Chung, Mirage: Disused Public Property in Taiwan, we ask: who are built environments in Vancouver for and why? What can be done to address the inequities of public space-making?

At this lunch-and-learn, two graduates of the UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA) will present their research and proposals on the local urban planning process and its effects on community spaces and futures. After the presentations, political geographer Dr. Eugene McCann will lead a panel discussion along side SALA professor Young-Tack Oh.

Participants will then be broken into discussion groups led by folks who are working on the ground in grassroots placemaking initiatives for their communities.
