Is the right to the city still relevant to think about our social relations and struggles in the city after the post-covid pandemic? There are many ways in which the social role of the city has changed in just a few months, and we are still trying to envision and to understand the new setting of the cities and how it meets our needs as connected human beings.

This conversation, hosted by Delphine Salvi and Elven Sicart in Les Têtes de l'Art, will go through some of the traditional struggles that have been part of different European right to the city movements to reflect about the challenges we are facing as a society in the coming months and years, taking special attention at creative narratives that are portraying the scenario and its difficulties in an innovative way.
