From July 4-12, Interactive City will hold a summer school at the Strelka Institute titled "Interactive Moscow: Spatial Theories, Practices, Interventions." A collaboration between the University College London (UCL), Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, the Higher School of Economics (HSE) and the Russian State University for the Humanities (RSUH), the course is dedicated to engaging students in dialogue on the future of cities. It is not an attempt to simply refresh the city's image, but to question who is the source of change, how does this change take place and what lies behind the concept of "right to the city."
The school is open to current undergraduates from any field, including those who graduated this year. The course will be in English, and led by academics and practitioners from LSE, Vilnius, HSE and RSUH.
Applications are due on June 24. The total cost of the course is $30 (1000 rubles), and only charged to admitted applicants.
Online applications and further information can be found at interаctive-city.org. Please contact Yuriy Milevskiy with questions.
