Cultivating collaborative lifestyles in urban neighbourhoods
Despite the increase of urban populations resulting in people living in close proximity to each other, society continues to operate with a focus on individual desire rather than collectivity. Cultivating Collaborative Lifestyles in Urban Neighbourhoods explores the everyday practice of collaboration and its potential for transforming neighbourhoods into hyper-local networks that are socially and environmentally sustainable, resilient and thriving.
The research of this project is presented in the form of a toolkit called An Activist’s Guide to Cultivating Collaboration, presenting methods and guidelines that encourage individuals to become activists for collaboration in their neighbourhoods. The installation featured in this exhibition presents the toolkit along with an interactive board which allows you, the visitor, to ideate different ways of activating your own neighbourhood.
