From July 4-12, Interactive City will hold a summer course 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 “right to the city.”

The course is open to present undergraduates from any field, including those who graduated this year. Activities will be in English, under the guidance of professors from LSE, Vilnius, HSE and RSUH. The total cost is $30 (1,000 rubles).

Online applications and further information can be found at interаctive-city.org. Applications are due on June 24.

Yuriy Milevskiy is assistant dean of the HSE Graduate School of Urban Studies.
