The AESOP Thematic Group on Public Spaces and Urban Cultures hosts a one-day networking meeting “Becoming Local Vienna”, which is organized by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space (http://skuor.tuwien.ac.at) at Vienna University of Technology. The meeting will explore local links between the umbrella theme “Becoming local” and issues of emancipation in planning and design, which lie in the focus of successive WWTF summer school (30th Aug to 5th Sep). The focus will be put primarily on practical experiences and empirical approaches. Moreover, the meeting seeks to produce concrete outputs and conclusions concerning possibilities and limitations of various approaches and methods to empowering and constituting city publics in an inclusive way.

ROUNDTABLE: MARKETPLACES as URBAN DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES (9-12 July 2014, Utrecht, the Netherlands)
Marketplaces are often romanticised as traditional spaces of 'pure' encounters between producers and consumers in an increasingly privatised world. Farmer’s Markets are well-known example of this and several city governments seem to have embraced the urban marketplace as a tool for ‘placemaking.’ Yet this enthusiasm needs to be supported by a critical analysis of how exactly, marketplaces act as inclusive public spaces that support residents, rather than merely real estate developers. For this reason, two members of our thematic group, Freek Janssens (UvA) and Ceren Sezer (TU Delft) are organizing a roundtable discussion during the AESOP Annual Congress 2014, in the Netherlands. Sophie Watson, Arnold Reiindorp, Ching Lin Pang, Nuria Costa Galobart and Will Fullford will contribute to the session. (For more information about the conference: http://www.aesop2014.eu)
