Metropolitan Trails Academy zu Gast im HdAK

am kommenden Dienstag, 10. Dezember um 19h im HdAK gibt es die Gelegenheit, das Programm der Metropolitan Trails Academy (MTA) näher kennen zu lernen: https://www.hda-koeln.de/kalender/191210_hdak/

In der Metropolitan Trails Academy haben sich einige der wichtigsten Akteure der europäischen Stadtwandererszene zusammen getan und, mit Unterstützung der Europäischen Union, ein Programm der Erwachsenenbildung ausgearbeitet, das die Inhalte und Methoden des systematischen Stadtwanderns weitergeben und verbreiten möchte. Dabei werden die vielfältigen Aspekte und Anknüpfungspunkte dieser Arbeitsweise beleuchtet – von der Komposition und Ausschilderung eines Weges über Aspekte der Stadtökologie, der Beteiligungskultur und des Community Building bis hin zu Fragen der Stadt- und Raumplanung und der Verflüssigung ihrer Prozesse im Gehen. Das Format des urbanen Fernwanderwegs wird dabei gleichermaßen als Kunstwerk, Infrastruktur und Planungstool etabliert. 

Anmeldungen zu den Wanderungen und Workshops in Athen, Paris, Mailand, Köln und Marseille sind ab sofort möglich. Details zu den Daten und die Links zur Anmeldeplattform können Sie der unten stehenden, englischsprachigen mail entnehmen.

Mit besten Grüßen,
Boris Sieverts

  • You are an architect, landscape designer, urban planner and you want to improve your relationship with fieldwork and other associated disciplines…
  • You are a hiker and interested in architecture and urban planning…
  • You work in the field of education (adults and/or children) and would like to develop the fieldwork dimension with your students…

Two possible formats:
