Public Speaking: Future Architecture Platform

The organisation of debates and public speaking constitute a big part of the activities of Amateur Cities. Cristina Ampatzidou and Ania Molenda, the Amateur Cities editors are regularly

invited to present their work in several public events, conferences and lectures, actively promoting the potential of rethinking cities through the lens of amateurism to an international audience. In January 2016 we joined the Future Architecture Platform network, the first pan-European architecture platform connecting architecture museums, architecture festivals and producers, and bringing ideas on the future of cities and architecture closer to the wider public. As part of the Future Architecture Platform, we were invited to share our ideas on the future of cities in various events, such as the Matchmaking Conference of the Future Architecture Platform at MAO, Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana, the CANactions Festival in Kiev and the conference Production, the City and its Culture at the Museum of Architecture in Wroclaw.
