In Paris, the USR will meet with actors of the parisian cultural life engaged in urban processes both in the city center and in the « banlieues ». Through walks, workshop, visits, discussions and cooking sessions, the Class will gain insight on the long Parisian tradition of grassroots projects, spaces, and urban initiatives, as well as the current trend that tends to increaslingly include them into bigger scale urbanism plans.
Our partners in Paris are space le 6b and Bellastock in Saint Denis, R-Urban in Colombes, la Ferme du Bonheur in Nanterre, Collectif la Main in the 15th arrondissement, artist Stefan Shankland, architect Merril Sinéus, as well as key figures from Grand Paris (tba).
