The AESOP Thematic Group for Public Spaces and Urban Cultures hereby opens a call to different partner institutions, in Europe and beyond, to host the group’s future meetings in the years 2013 to 2015. After having dealt with the subject of “Conviviality” during the group’s meetings in Vienna, Ljubljana, Naples, Brussels and Lisbon, which took place in the period between 2010 and 2012, the new topic BECOMING LOCAL has been initially developed during the group’s meeting in Lisbon in December 2012. This umbrella topic complements the group’s preceding approaches and activities aimed at critically reflecting, analysing and discussing current trends and tendencies pertaining to public spaces and urban cultures in the field of urban research, design and planning. If you are interested in hosting an upcoming group meeting, please contact us at psucnetwork@gmail.com until 21st June 2013.
