The SUSPLACE Final Event “Exploring places & practices through transformative methods” took place in Tampere, Finland from May 7 to 10, 2019.
The Event was inspired by the desire to explore new ways of engaging with communities by means of experimental and unconventional research methods and approaches, to shape places towards desired futures.
Organized to celebrate and share the results of the four-year European MSCA ITN project SUSPLACE, the event brought together an enthusiastic and engaged group of around 70 international participants. For three days, we delved into discussions through various forms of interactions, such as plenaries, panel discussions, artistic expressions and performances, and field trips to Finnish case studies. All activities were structured according to the underlying themes of the event: Disruptive and creative methods; Engaging people and Ethical doings.
