#1 Writing Urban History | Dec 2018
The CityLabs is a year-long initiative to further our understanding of Indian cities. As part of the initiative, a series of workshops are planned across the Indian Subcontinent and publications are planned on the themes of Writing Urban Histories, Dystopia and Utopian Imaginations, Urban Mapping and Representation and Reimagining Urban Infrastructures. CityLabs wishes to create a body of work that is publicly accessible and can be used to bring about a gradual change in the way we perceive and imagine our cities.
