Central Saint Martins: Voices of the City
This conference and discussion, looked at how voices can be used to communicate, understand and challenge contemporary urban practices, spatial ideas and practices. Led by Diana Ibáñez López and Alex Warnock-Smith, professors in the MA Cities program at Central Saint Martins, this talk explored the pedagogical experiments, collaborative work and dialogues transnational events that take place in the MA Cities course. Within this meeting, we explored case studies and projects focused on the theme ‘Voices of the city’.
Diana and Alex discussed how radio can be used as a vehicle for transnational conversations and how this formed the basis for students and professionals to engage in conversations about social, climate and political justice within the urban environment. These dialogues addressed, expressed and countered the challenges facing cities today, as well as exploring the tensions between the local, the city and the global, also considering the different forms of voice mobility at these scales.
