This open webinar is an attempt to establish a dialogical relationship between different perspectives on the interplay of power relations and collaborative city-making processes focusing on local processes of co-production and civic engagement, particularly of the marginalised communities. By recognising (1) practices, (2) pedagogies and (3) policies, and interrelations among the involved actors and institutions, debates on participatory collaboration in city-making processes are broadened. In the course of the webinar, the discussed concepts, ideas and experiences were shared in a virtual collaborative map, which can be explored on miro or downloaded here.
