“All cities are mad: but the madness is gallant. All cities are beautiful, but the beauty is grim.”
Cities are shaped by multiple realities, multiple narratives, multiple personalities, multiple … the list is endless. We interact with the city daily, negotiating our way through all its complexities. But how often do we pause to reflect on our relationship with the city? How does the city impact us, and what imprint do we leave behind? There’s no single answer to these questions.
YUVA is proud to announce ComplexCity, a week-long celebration of urban values, history, culture, socio-economic realities and much more in March 2018. We extend an open invitation to inhabitants of the city to join us in debating and discussing all things urban, so that we may better understand these shifting spaces and our role in co-creating inclusive and democratic cities. Each programme aims to offer knowledge-sharing platforms and spaces, to help us engage with and appreciate a range of perspectives.
