‘Alexandria: (Re)activating Common Urban Imaginaries’ offers a training process that aims to nurture the historical, societal and artistic knowledge and skills of both heritage and arts professionals. This collective knowledge will be generated through a series of 4 workshops specifically addressed at a general audience and professionals such as archaeologists, historians, curators, urbanists, architects, students, artists and scientists.
The themes and set-up of each workshop will be developed and communicated over the project’s course. Each will address one or more of the exhibition’s themes and be tailored to the organising partner’s area of expertise. They will take place in Leiden (Leiden University), Morlanwelz (Musée Royal de Mariemont), Brussels (Bozar) and Aarhus (Kunsthal) throughout 2022.
Detailed information about the workshops will be communicated during the last quarter of 2021.
