Εmergency Accomodation: Practices of Urban Solidarity, October 29 Venice

Zissis Kotionis, Yianna Barkouta

Round table discussion in the Greek Pavillion #ThisIsACo-op
Saturday the 29th of October, 11:00 am

What we propose is an international workshop- forum at the Greek Pavilion in Venice on contemporary Urban Solidarity Practices. The workshop will be engaged with the relevant contemporary experiences of Urban Solidarity Practices in Greece, as they are developed through structures ‘from below’ and collectives’ horizontal actions.

We will deal with how hospitality, temporary residence, health care, nutrition, learning and alternative paradigms of economy become aspects of self-organized social practices, beyond the official institutions of charity and public welfare? How are those dynamics shaped within the urban space and the social formation?

Are there potentialities for the internationalization of a network of horizontal practices? How politics are influenced and reshaped? What are the responsibilities and the tasks of architecture?

The recently published bilingual book “Urban Solidarity Practices”, presented in the Greek Pavilion of Venice, aspires to be the starting point of this discussion.
