In the Urban Belonging project, urban planners and humanities scholars work closely together with local community partners in Copenhagen to explore how different people perceive and experience the city as a place of belonging. The project involves the design of an app for tracing and visualizing urban attachments and a methodology for working with this data in participatory settings with the involved participants. Finally, the project ponders how this way of approaching the issue of belonging differs from the gaze of professionals working with it in the context of urban design. The project will end with an exhibition in Copenhagen.
