Future Cape Town, and the Urban Design Institute of South Africa (UDISA) present the event series ‘The future of public space’.
The three-part lecture series on public space seeks to promote discourse on the contemporary challenges of the public realm against the backdrop of deepening inequality, fast urbanising cities and increasing socio-economic volatility. It will also seek to explore challenges of the future, where the changing nature of public-private ownership, aritificial intelligence, space travel, 3d printing and manufacturing present scenarios that few working in the field have grappled with.
The first event in the series will focus on people and initiatives in African cities, including Cape Town, Lagos, Addis Ababa, and potentially Cairo and Nairobi.
Olamide Udoma, of Future Lagos will present on the research and work in Lagos, including recent collaborations with the British Council, Playeable City and Watershed.
Rashiq Fataar will briefly introduce the recent initiatives of Future Cape Town in public spaces.
The event format will vary between events, but will include presentations, pecha kuchas and panel discussions.
