The Urbanist Protester – Next City

The Urbanist Protester

In a TED talk given in 2015, Chicago artist and urban planner Theaster Gates said, “It’s not really about the material, it’s about our capacity to shape things.”

As President-elect Trump prepares to enter the White House and the world says goodbye to another Chicagoan, Barack Obama, these words remind us of our power to determine the next four years. This ebook contains articles and essays, including one by Gates, about the history of protest in cities, the role of place in social justice movements and how the notion of design as protest is changing cities. Read and be inspired to shape things.
