Communicative Cities

Contemporary society, and public culture, is no longer formed by values and practices that arise from and remain bound to a homogenous group, but has multiple origins, addresses diverse communities, and flows across territorial boundaries.

Communicative Cities is a platform for strategic research projects and tactical interventions in public life and focuses on transformations in civic culture produced by new intersections of knowledge, media, space and mobility (and diverse modes of local agency) within Australia and internationally. Programs are designed to investigate the issues that are transforming public culture, and seek to identify new trends in the social uses of public spaces and frame the horizons of public expectations.

Program Coordinators: Professor Nikos Papastergiadis, Professor Scott McQuire and Professor Sean Cubitt.
