Good Deeds, Smallest Evils or Pacts with the Devil?

A workshop event on the significance of participation and engagement in processes of urban change, curated by Luke Cooke-Yarborough and Julika Gittner.
Date: 24 April 2014

You are invited to the third and final workshop in the Good Deeds series, investigating the significance of participation, engagement and collaboration in processes of urban regeneration. Good Deeds, Smallest Evils or Pacts with the Devil? is curated by Luke Cooke-Yarborough and Julika Gittner, and with the venue and some enthusiastic encouragement provided by the Cass.
Instant Community versus long-term engagement will investigate, through varied perspectives of urban regeneration, how existing communities can influence urban change with a specific focus on duration of regeneration processes. It will reflect on the speed of change and its impact on the quality and appropriateness of the urban interventions. It will consider the role of quick projects, events and pilots in shaping more significant development. 

The session will allow for a unique insight into the motivations and practices of varied practitioners, through the experiences of five speakers that span the spectrum of involvement in urban change.
