Explore and develop ideas about the future of the city and social interaction at this free 8-week course that will guide you through activities focusing on modifying, critiquing and addressing our urban environments and associated social interactions. With a mix of formal lectures, invited guests, open discussions and practical hands-on idea generation, participants will learn a variety of 'design thinking' skills, which will enable them to work on developing a prototype project.
Classes will be run every Tuesday evening from the 16 October from 6pm until 8pm, upstairs in Studios 1 & 2 in Science Gallery, Pearse St, Dublin 1.
Deadline for registration is TUESDAY 9TH OCTOBER 2012.
This course is free to attend, but places are limited to 15 participants. Submission is open to anyone interested in taking the course. No particular skills are required.
Given the nature and intensity of the module it will be necessary to attend all sessions. This course is non-assessed as emphasis is placed on self-directed learning, exploration and collaborative development.
The core deadlines and outputs for the course will include:
Tuesday 20th November: Submit literature and/or project critique (1,000 words)
Tuesday 11th December: Submit group presentation and group report (2,000 words)
