"Conference: Women designing and planning for social equality"

A political and feminist reading of practitioners’ commitment to rethink practice, question theory and take space

International Conference | Friday 28th June 2024

ZHAW Institut Urban Landscape - Tössfeldstrasse 11, Winterthur, Switzerland

The one-day conference aims to explore the ways in which women in spatial practices initiated or have been involved in rethinking practice, questioning theory, and taking space. As a result, their positionality as women and their political commitment guided their praxis towards fostering social participation and improving the everyday life of those usually inhabiting the margins of society.
