Collective Mapping: How to Grow Together

Where would community gardens have the most significant & positive impact on our existing urban environment? Inspired by the theory of urban acupuncture, the mapping session will focus on investigating public space and highlighting the vulnerable sectors of Vienna that could be regenerated through urban agriculture interventions. Using participants’ perception of public space(s) as a measurement unit, we will collectively create a cartography of Vienna – connected to the following potentials of urban gardening: socialization, education and food security.

Following the Collective Mapping Sessionthe participants will be invited to explore and discuss the topic of “how to grow together” during an excursion to two community garden initiatives.

An open space dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and skills – in the frame of small, practical workshops, reading circles, film clubs or excursions. Ideas are continuously collected in the Community College; the afternoons will partly evolve spontaneously or on a short-term basis.
