About the traveling circus of urbanism

What is the traveling circus of urbanism?

The Traveling Circus of Urbanism is a platform for other urban narratives that are collected from the world through traveling. This is an exploration of various urban practices with a global perspective, in a way to challenge the focus on localism and ignorance of urbanists for what is happening in the world.

Travel is a way to unravel the essence of places, seeing them from different perspectives and revealing how they are globally connected.

A circus moves from a city to another, telling stories that are collected from its journey.

Urbanism is about how people live in cities and interact with our urban environments.

It covers a wide range of topics such as urban design, inclusive urbanism, community development, urban art and culture, politics and urban sustainability and more.
