Show Notes

Welcome back to Urban Planning is Not Boring, the podcast that explores the fascinating world of urban planning. In this episode, we sit down with Ryy Dickerson, an urban planner from Providence, Rhode Island who recently wrote his thesis entitled "Grief Urbanism: Placemaking, Surrealism, and Freedom Inside Protest Camps." Ryy's work explores the role of protest camps and other temporary urban interventions in creating new spaces of community and resistance within the city. We discuss the inspirations for Ryy's thesis and the ways in which grief and other strong emotions can be used to create new forms of urban space. We also explore the challenges and opportunities in which these interventions can be used to advance broader social and political goals. Join us for a fascinating conversation about the power of urban interventions and the role of planning in shaping the city of the future.
