Informal Sport and the Urban Commons
- This event has passed.
Visit the Arts Precinct at Macquarie University during this year’s 2023 Social Sciences Week for a special preview of research findings from a visual ethnography project, Informal Sport and the Urban Commons, exploring the role that informal sport plays in facilitating social inclusion in the global city.
Between September 5 to 8, the Theatrette at the Intercultural Foyer located inside the Arts Precinct will come to life with video interviews and documentary photography taken with temporary migrant workers in Singapore who share stories about the significance of informal sport in their everyday lives.
Informal Sport and the Urban Commons is a visual ethnography that aims to provoke reflection on the intersection between leisure practices, migrant place-making, and the right to the city.
