Manifesto

The main objective of this initiative is to create an informal intellectual space that brings together people from various sections of the New School who are interested in cities, urban phenomena, and who feel the need for a shared discussion. While urban issues are widely covered by the courses and events offered within the different schools, we believe that a student-driven, collective, informal yet systematic effort to share and discuss the knowledge and ideas produced inside and outside the classroom, is necessary.

For this reason, the urban sessions’ aspiration is to create this new space that will function as a laboratory of ideas. Not only will it provide a casual but stimulating environment for people to present their research-questions related to urban issues and receive feedback, it will also serve to construct a collective of urban thinkers/practitioners, exploring questions together.
