Urban T(act)tics

Organised by Barnaby Bennett

Supported by Dalman Architecture

Where: The Physics Room, Level 3, 209 Tuam St

When: Saturday 26 October, 11am – 2.30pm

A symposium exploring tactics and acts of urbanism

Designers, architects, academics, journalists and event organisers from around Australasia present urban projects from other cities and explore case studies and perspectives on urbanism.

Urban T(act)tic(s) is an opportunity for groups and individuals doing similar work in Christchurch to learn lessons from other cities and to meet people curious about what is happening here. All presenters work in organisations that have influence in their city but not as part of government, and will reflect on how their work can be considered an action, activity or tactic within the city.

The session will include a series of ten-minute presentations with ample discussion time and a light lunch somewhere in the middle.
