Architecture of Peace is a long-term research and action project exploring how architects and urban planners can and should play an active role in the process of rebuilding and stabilizing post-conflict spaces. For the next step of the project, we are conducting a series of Dialogues inviting those working in the field of politics, aid, architecture, community work, and development cooperation to share their knowledge and experience and rethink the post-conflict community.
Four Architecture of Peace Dialogues in April & May 2019 intend to give new insights and tools to work with in the coming years. The format of the exchange will experiment with the fusion of the ‘Socratic Dialogue’ and ‘The Handbook for Democratic Dialogue’. Each Dialogue will revolve around a specific question and be hosted at a venue relevant to the topic:
With the Architecture of Peace Dialogues we want to achieve three goals. First of all, we hope the Dialogues will lead to clear next steps for the project at large. Secondlywe aim to create a new tool for having a fruitful dialogue between people from different backgrounds with a different jargon (one of the obstacles to achieving or maintaining peace), and lastly we want to bring the AoP project to the attention of a larger audience.
We are offering a limited number of spaces available for Dialogues #2 & #3. If you are interested in attending please get in touch with Cristina Garriga (firstname.lastname@example.org) with some information about your background and interests in the topic. For further information on the Architecture of Peace project please refer to the AoP brochure, available online and stay tuned on our website and social media.
Dialogue #4 is a public event – more information on the time and location will be available soon on our Facebook page!
