IMAGE - Researching the City


We are pleased to invite you to IMAGE - Researching the City: Mapping imaginaries conference.

After two years of partnering and collaborating within this Erasmus + funded project, we aim to present the higher education materials we have co-developed within the consortium of 5 universities and more than 350 students, and together with our city partners from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Lisbon, Paris, and Vienna. We have run 3 collaborative editions of projects within the International Image Lab (ILL) that enabled students to map imaginaries of cities’ ‘peripheries’ (also with sentient data) stimulating their critical thinking and at the same time creating infrastructure for higher education institutes (HEI’s) that facilitates the ‘mapping imaginaries’ method. During the conference we will also launch the ‘Knowledge Hub’, an online repository of all created documentary entries that enhances the visibility and accessibility of the materials.

Please join us on 8 November in this event of shared knowledge. After all, it is in the so-called ‘peripheral’ areas that many of our institutions have found a place to build venues and campuses. There are many reasons for these developments, however it is important to remember the explicit desire of our institutions to contribute to a more varied and prosperous city. Being students, faculty and partners in cities means being agents in these processes as well.
