Venice Gatherings 2023. Learning from real conflict and post-conflict situations.
Workshop and Expert Meeting.
The war in Ukraine immediately evokes questions on the rebuilding of its cities and villages. In the various phases from war to peace, there are pitfalls that should be detected and stumbling blocks to avoid, but there are also possibilities to act and really make a difference. When acting informed and with care a contribution can be made to rebuild a more resilient community and environment than there even was before.In order to make those plans and proposals, politicians, architects and urbanists are in need of good examples from other countries. While every conflict is different, there are things that we can learn and share from previous experiences, from regulatory tools and data collection to political, environmental and spatial strategies, and simple do's and don'ts. The workshop gathers people who have dealt (or are still dealing) with situations of conflict and post-conflict from their own experience and is focused on exchanging knowledge, experiences and expertise. Everyone with expertise or interest in this field is cordially invited to participate. Worthwhile to mention that the Venice Biennale Architettura will take place at the same time as our event - another exceptional reason to join us in Venice.
