ACC and Cityscapes Collective presents experts from the worlds of architecture, public health, education, culture and technology to discuss the key ideas driving their work in a series of provocations moderated by award-winning filmmaker, community organiser and urbanist Michael Uwemedimo of CMAP.

Presented as a series of provocations, the ideas they will share on their various practices will show the radical thinking that is necessary to address the many seemingly intractable challenges faced cities globally – but specifically across the global South. It’s clear that business as usual is not enough anymore. This event seeks to expand the palette we are using to determine the future of the global South city beyond the Western template of received wisdom that has been the dominant informant of how we think of the ongoing urban transition
