Events, Urban Colloquium

Invite for Urban Colloquium_02

Urban Colloquium is a monthly seminar to meet, share, and discuss all things urban!
The meets will be scheduled every 2nd saturday of the month from 6:30pm till 7:30pm.

Last month we had the first meet of the year with the screening of two short films on urban renewal and megaurbanisation in Mumbai.

This month we have a speaker from a Bangalore based organization called ‘Fields of View‘.
Sruthi Krishnan was a software engineer who went on to become a journalist. She joined The Hindu in Chennai and reported on technology. After that she moved to Bangalore where she collaborated with two professors, writing a book on design which is expected to be out this year. Meanwhile, she started an organization called Fields of View along with a group of friends where she now works as a researcher. Recently they finished a project with Medialab Amsterdam and IIIT-Bangalore, to develop a prototype of Convers(t)ation, a panel that can be installed in public spaces to collect informal reports of sexual harassment (http://vimeo.com/87071472).
A lot of their work is focused towards using gaming and technology to address urban issues.

See the poster below for event details. The Google Maps location for the venue is on this link- https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=213913043706048783212.0004f2586419e69363332

Please join us for this talk that promises to be exciting!
