Melbourne Design Week // Urban Undercurrents: The hidden infrastructure of wild cities

Updated: Mar 16, 2022

Friday 18 March 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Collingwood Yards Courtyard

35 Johnston St, Collingwood VIC 3066, Australia

For Melbourne Design Week, APR is collaborating with RMIT University to create an underground experience: Urban Undercurrents

Urban Undercurrents is an interdisciplinary performative laboratory that roams the city tracing the human and more-than-human entanglements of what lies beneath the city and its culture. It asks: What happens when climate action goes underground? How do government and industry agendas reverberate beneath our feet? What are the wild undercurrents and hidden infrastructures coursing all around—how do we encounter feral ecologies, contaminated creativity and stray ethics? And how do we make space for conversations and rituals that create the conditions for regeneration and wild life? As an artistic intervention, speculative proposition and community discussion, this event takes place in the Collingwood Yards courtyard inviting the audience into an experience of the city’s metaphoric and literal subterranea.

Book your Tickets on Eventbrite, free event with limited spots available.

As one of our rituals, we propose the Underground Pathways experience. Click in the audio below and start your journey!
