Divergent City: Creating radical care-based cities

Creative Mornings Ottawa
February 2021

Cities are places where people converge.

In the streets, in parks, in cafes, in workplaces, in schools, in arts and entertainment venues (at least before covid). This cosmopolitan ideal of “coming together” contributes to a city’s vibrancy and also its democratic potential.

But this ideal risks erasing difference for sameness. For what is “normal.” The many crises our cities face will not be resolved with more of the same. Maybe it’s time to make space for divergent cities, divergent stories, and divergent plans.
