The webinar will present a research agenda for participatory urban planning that will be implemented in the New European Bauhaus Lighthouse Demonstrator project NEB-STAR. The aim of this is to assist vulnerable populations in Stavanger getting access to, and influence on, urban planning decisions. The starting point draws on the Utopian Future Workshop format (Critique, Utopia, Realisation), but particular attention is paid to to the Realisation phase in the presentation. Project aim is to investigate how vulnerable and marginalized groups can gain political potency in urban planning processes, and there is a focus on the role of “experts” such as researchers, planners, artists, and architects in supporting these visions become reality.
