The workshop deals with the topic "solidary city making". This involves questions of power distribution in the context of privilege and discrimination in the design and use of the city. One component of the workshop is making people aware of their own privelegies in this context. This is potentially triggering for most people. The workshop is structured in such a way that through a slow approach and an initial discussion in silence, each person can decide for themselves how far they will open themselves up to this reflection. The results of this task are not shared with the group. At the end, there is an opportunity to discuss the feelings that have arisen in this context with the group or the facilitators.

I want to design the city and do Urban Practice. In doing so, my practice is meant to be solidarity-based. Where is it already? And where not? How does solidarity-based city-making work? And what role does my own social position play in this?

The two-hour workshop “MACHT STADT SOLIDARISCH” is aimed at all urban practitioners, urban designers, initiatives and interested parties who want to shape their own practice in solidarity. The starting point is the collaboratively designed booklet “MACHT STADT SOLIDARISCH – Denkanstöße für eine solidarische Urbane Praxis” (available for download at ), which was developed as a co-research project in the Urban League and explores diverse perspectives on solidarity-based city-making.
