What are streets for? For walking, vending, playing, sleeping, eating, talking to people- the list is endless. On any street one encounters the diversity of people, livelihoods, and interactions that characterise the urban ecosystem. However, the regulation of street is increasingly at odds with reality of these spaces​, and communities dependent on the streets for shelter and livelihood are being deprived of the right to access streets.  At the heart of these regulations is a limiting imagination of the city space- this course will take you  through the lived realities of city streets.
