‘Walking the City’ has been a course that brought together urban practitioners from various backgrounds and courses within EKA as well as outside of it in an effort to introduce the potential of staging urban walks and participatory interventions.
The course revolved around a two-day Tallinn-Maardu-Jägala walk conducted by ‘Stalker’ (Italy) who led 50 students from England, Sweden, Finland and Estonia across the various liminal and peripheral spaces on the way. Based on their experience and findings ‘Walking the City’ participants identified key spatial as well as social issues along the route and mapped possibilities for intervention.
The presentations will showcase the outcome of these participatory urban interventions and offer a platform for discussion on the impact an individual or self-organised groups can have on perceived space.
The presentations will take place this Friday, 13.11.2015 at 18.00 at the Estonian Academy of Arts, Department of Architecture. The address is Pikk tn. 20, Tallinn 10133, 3rd floor.
All are welcome!
