Re-imagining The City After a Pandemic.
with Shreelata Rao Seshadri and Kiran Keswani
A major realisation for all of us is that pandemics have a way of reshaping our lives. As individuals and families, it affected how we live in and use the physical space of our home - where we eat, where we sleep, where we work, where we play, where we chat and fight and laugh and get in each other's hair. As communities, it did the same for how we use common spaces - the roads and parks and markets and places of worship.
In this session, we want to give participants the perspective and tools to articulate what was 'good' and what was 'bad' during the pandemic in terms of how they used private and public spaces during the pandemic - and how could some of that learning extend into the new 'normal' life of the future? How would you like to see your neighbourhood or your city change - what would be your ideal neighbourhood or city?
Come and join our experienced facilitators - Kiran is an architect and urban planner, Shreelata is a public health specialist who has studied pandemics - and create your vision of that future city! Make a map, draw a sketch, compose a poem, write a story, make a short video - whatever expresses you best. Bring your family and friends - this can be a fun group activity!
This session has been curated by Encounter Eclectic
What is EncounterEclectic? EncounterEclectic believes that learning is an on-going and lifelong journey. Many of us would like to learn more about a diverse range of subjects – from art to literature to history and cultures to astronomy – but not in a formal classroom, nor to pass an exam. Do you just want to explore a topic or discuss an idea? That’s where EncounterEclectic comes in!
EncounterEclectic is the brainchild of a group of people deeply engaged with higher education, with decades of experience in teaching at premier universities. They have curated over 75 extramural courses focused on continuous learning, supported by a team of experienced facilitators from diverse fields.
Sometimes provocative, but not controversial or contentious; not too academic yet not superficial – EncounterEclectic is a space for ‘learned leisure’.
