Wandering Living Room

Welcome to “Pop-Up Living Room: Crafting Community Spaces,” an interactive online course designed for urban enthusiasts, community leaders, and creative placemakers. This course invites you to reimagine public spaces as vibrant hubs of connection, storytelling, and cultural exchange. Inspired by the innovative Placemaking 4 Inclusion project, this learning experience equips you with the tools to transform ordinary urban areas into welcoming living rooms that travel from one neighborhood to another, collecting and sharing the diverse stories of their inhabitants.

Throughout this course, you will:

  • Explore the concept of the “Pop-Up Living Room” and its roots in addressing issues of migration and belonging.
  • Learn how to design and implement a mobile living room setup that acts as a catalyst for community engagement and inclusion.
  • Discover creative strategies for fostering a sense of home and shared identity in public spaces.
  • Gain insights into planning, budgeting, and executing a pop-up event that encourages expression, interaction, and performance.
  • Understand how to navigate the logistical and legal aspects of urban interventions while ensuring accessibility and openness.
  • Be inspired by case studies and success stories of pop-up living rooms that have enlivened cities and strengthened communal bonds.

By the end of this course, you will not only have the practical knowledge to launch your own “Pop-Up Living Room” initiative but also the inspiration to drive forward the conversation about inclusive urban development and placemaking. Join us to learn how your actions can turn public spaces into shared places of warmth, dialogue, and collective storytelling.
