What you can do with the city

Living in a city means living together, defining and negotiating relationships with neighbours and with the urban environment. But it’s easy to overlook the everyday actions that make the stuff of urban life because it often seems like they are overpowered by the heavy frame of the contemporary urban system’s logistics, administration, and regulations. Bring the focus back onto pedestrians, gardeners, religious pilgrims, cyclists, recyclers, and drivers stuck in traffic. Make and use the city.

Since children might see possibilities that adults don’t, we need their help. In these videos, they address real questions and complaints posed by people in Montreal, analyze them, and develop imaginative responses that reveal the unforeseen possibilities of building sites.
