BUILD YOUR OWN FARMING CITY | TATE EXCHANGE 2020
Workshop design, facilitation, producer
For this year’s event, I creatively produced and co-designed a series of workshops, including Build Your Own FARMING-CITY! in collaboration with the Chicago-based architects Design With Company and London’s innovation lab GreenLab.
Build Your Own FARMING-CITY! stems from Design with Company’s original project Hedge HUG, a fictional exploration of rural urbanism, where the city is brought into and around the farm. Hedge-HUG challenged visitors to think about how spaces can be changed and used to grow food in places near where consumers live. This time around at the Tate Exchange in March 2020, the workshop gave the public the opportunity to create beautiful cities, mixing urban, farming and tech elements using custom-designed stencils, stickers and coloured pens. Children and adults alike got together in using one of the most powerful tools in our arsenal to shape how we might live differently: our imaginations.
