Call for Participants to CANactions' first Spring School

CANactions Schooland the Independent School for the City have launched the open call to its first Spring School "Borders are for Crossing"! 

Post graduate students from all over the world with a background in urban studies such as Architecture, Urban Design and Planning, Architectural History, Sociology, Anthropology, Political and Cultural Studies, Arts and Media, and other related fields are invited to apply. 

The Spring School ‘Borders are for Crossing’ is an eight-day program organized by the Independent School for the City and CANactions School, exploring how the intra-European transfer of people, ideas, goods and finances effects spatial, social, economic and political conditions in a western city. Together with an international group of participants and a multidisciplinary team of tutors and lecturers, you will research manifestations of migration and develop stories, strategies and actions for an urban renewal area in the City of Rotterdam: Oud and Nieuw Mathenesse, former workers and harbour areas between Rotterdam and Schiedam.
