A workshop and conversation based on the book What is the City from the A4 teens series.
These sessions are a game and an experiment.

These sessions are a game and an experiment. Participants in the workshop, based on the book “The City of the Future,” will be divided into two groups. Each group will receive a large piece of paper – a giant tablecloth.
One of them will need to draw a Utopian City, built around the interests of the inhabitants, and the other totalitarian City, governed by the Dictator Villain.
Special attention in both cases is suggested to city services, the energy and food supply, the organization of education and so on.
A4Teens project was started by Nika Dubrovsky and her late husband, anthropologist David Graeber, to create a space for dialogue about the important questions that all humans seek answers to: what is the city, wealth, family, death, justice.
