Broken City Lab / Unrest Everywhere (tools for playing with Halifax)

April 12, 2012May 12, 2012

 Broken City Lab is an artist-led interdisciplinary creative research collective and non-profit organization working to explore and unfold curiosities around locality, infrastructures, and creative practice leading towards civic change.

The processes and projects of Broken City Lab stem from the lab’s observations and concerns about  the collapsed post-industrial city of Windsor, Ontario, as a city, as a community, and as a network of infrastructure, and aim to do two things: first, Broken City Lab works through interventionist tactics to adjust, critique, annotate, and re-imagine the city that we encounter; secondly, through these interventions, the lab seeks to educate, inspire, and facilitate a new way of viewing the potential for interacting with and in the city.

Broken City Lab’s creative activity is rooted in community-based social practice, where the lab attempts to generate a new dialogue surrounding public participation and community engagement in the creative process, with a focus on the city as both a research site and workspace.

Unrest Everywhere (tools for playing with Halifax) will offer a set of tools for tactical engagement with the city through play, hacks, and improvisation. Exploring a city involves a process of uncovering, inventing, undoing, and negotiating spatial, economic, political and social dynamics. Our experience of place and the articulation of the city itself necessarily informs one another through cycles of interaction, and in turn, offer opportunities to actively change the ways in which we locate ourselves in between and across these elements -- we just have to decide to make that change. To this end, Unrest Everywhere (tools for playing with Halifax) will feature participatory installations, documentation, and distributable works that aim to suggest a different approach to the city and the way we interact with it.

A change  is in the rising among the civilians and to power that change, is present to channel those thoughts into writing.

Be it environment, diplomacy or economy, ‘change’ has come to America not through victory.
