10th 2020 EA Event
Co-Creation has become increasingly popular in recent years as a concept, method and policy tool. A key factor in the rise of Co-Creation is its potential in breaking down boundaries, between different parts of the city, between different groups within cities, between different parts of the world, between disciplines and between different practices. At the same time Co-Creation has been increasingly questioned in terms of encouraging co-option by the state and cultural imperialism.
To mark the end of a four year EU project on Co-Creation in marginalised urban areas, the School of the Built Environment at Oxford Brookes University is organising a two-day interdisciplinary conference bringing together academics, community representatives, NGOs and urban and cultural practitioners to explore the possibilities and limitations of Co-Creation in challenging such boundaries.
The conference is free to attend. The organisers will support the travel and accommodation of one early career researcher and one community-based artist or urban practitioner. If you would like to be considered for one of these bursaries, please indicate this in your submission.
This is the final conference of the Co-Creation project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 734770.
