About this event
In an increasingly urban and mobile culture, the notion of a smart city has come to the fore in recent years. This narrative has largely been about optimisation and efficiency – a hybrid of concrete and code infrastructure, built by large corporations and sold to city councils to manage resources; A presumption that cities are currently ‘dumb’…
There is however a parallel countercultural and disruptive notion of the Networked Citizen – people, places and projects which seek to challenge orthodoxy and almost subvert traditional power structures.
At TEDxCity2.0, we’ll showcase a range of speakers who are using art, food, wellbeing, housing, play, politics and public space to create serendipity, joy and resilience in our communities…
