Workshop: Life and Death in the Cemetery

Workshop: Life and Death in the Cemetery

As part of our More-than-Human: data interactions in the smart city project, we are organizing a workshop at the Tower Hamlets Cemetry Park in East London on Monday 19th July from 11am-2pm.

How might we use data and technology for thriving multispecies interactions in the city?

About the event

In this workshop we will explore More-than-Human relations in the urban cemetery together.

What microscopic communities live around us? How are the lives and deaths of humans entwined with other species? How might urban data be used for making the invisible visible? And how might we design new technologies for more equitable living spaces for all of London's inhabitants - human and non-human, big and small – and not just an elite few?

The workshop is part of a research project exploring new roles for data and technology to support more sustainable, inclusive, just and diverse cities.

When: Monday 19th July from 11am-2pm

Where: Soanes Centre, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, Southern Grove, London E3 4PX

Who: Interested people including urban planners, designers, researchers, growers, citizen scientists, parks users, biodiversity experts, local councillors.

Who is involved ?

The project is a collaboration between researchers at City, University of London, Goldsmiths University, Warwick University, Newcastle University, and the London School of Economics, and project partners the Roving Microscope and Cordwainers Grow. It is funded through an EPSRC Human Data Interactions Network Plus grant.
