Covid-19 has greatly changed the way we use public spaces. For months, we have had to avoid gathering to work, study and engage in recreational activities. How are creative communities responding to this?⁣

⁣On 6 November, our Regional Director Arts and Creative Industries East Asia Katelijn Verstraete will talk about our creative hubs programme in Southeast Asia, how they serve as extended public spaces and how they are rising to the challenge.⁣

She will be joined by Public Space Detective’s Floor Van Ditzhuyen and RMIT University’s Maggie McCormick and Fiona Hillary during the session on ‘Innovative Approaches and Creative Practices’.⁣

This symposium, ‘2020 A Year Without Public Space: Reflection and Outlook’, is organised by The Journal of Public Space, City Space Architecture, World Universities Network and supported by UN Habitat Global Public Space Programme.⁣
