Why Social equality in urban regeneration?

Community action initiatives in Govanhill have called for investment in regeneration to provide quality housing for Govanhill residents. However, urban regeneration presents social and environmental justice challenges due to the frequent displacement of low-income residents as a result of greening measures impacting rent prices. These tensions between environmental, social and economic objectives during urban transitions demonstrate the social and environmental externalities of our current economic system.

What is Social Presencing Theatre?

The ULab seeks to transform paradigms of economic thought by encouraging co-creation of alternative approaches. Social Presencing Theatre supports diverse stakeholders to understand the current reality and explore emerging future possibilities.

Workshop Content

Following a mindfulness exercise, participants will express an area of their life or work that feel stuck, explore how this relates to others experience and identify how they could collaborate to work towards a collectively desired future. A 4D mapping exercise will then enable participants to make the current social system visible and explore what shifts might enable an aspiring future to emerge.

Note regarding Participant Consent 

The workshop forms part of Robin’s MSc dissertation. Participant consent will be sought for video and audio recording and the use of any data generated for the MSc dissertation.
