|Full Description:||Montreal is characterized by attractive public spaces that feature colourful artwork, multi-story murals, communal gardens, and festivals that span the warmer seasons. In recent years we have seen more development of shared street spaces and public, outdoor ‘living rooms’. However, a closer look suggests these spaces are being designed for a very specific group: the young, middle-class, and able-bodied.
This workshop invites participants to re-imagine these spaces through a lens of intergenerationality and accessibility: a perspective that takes into account the needs of the very young, the very old, and the differently abled. It will also discuss some of the observations that were made while spending time, taking notes, conducting interviews, and doing research in these types of spaces.
Questions that will be explored in this workshop are as follows:
