Explore how artists can take advantage of opportunities
Explore how artists can take advantage of opportunities to develop work that engages with how cities work today. Current urban planning trends are about creating 20-minute neighbourhoods, or 20-minute cities, where residents can access things such as shopping, business services, education, community facilities, recreational and sporting resources, and some jobs within a 20-minute public transport trip, bike ride or walk from home. In this webinar, Jordin will share her experience with place-making for 20-minute cities, public art projects, and her research into multidisciplinary and cross-organisation collaboration.
