Prototyping the Civic City with the School of Civic Action With Public Works

Public Works

Join us in exploring how artist, design and activist practices can empower citizens to remake, rethink and reimagine the city

This year we’ll be focussing on how ‘civic action’ can allow participants to develop new skills, strategies and practices to directly affect changes in the city. Core to this is the idea of prototyping open source designs and rethinking organisational structures.

We are inviting you to explore and share prototypes for the Civic City. We’ll be hands on and building prototypes in support of local actions for environmental change and transforming the Tate Exchange into a public classroom, bringing together activists and practitioners engaged in civic movements, itself prototyping a collective education platform for civic action.

The is event is programmed by public works, a Tate Exchange Associate.
