‘A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality’.

The ignited passion recalling a clear memory from year 2013 – the very first project and idea I proposed at MAIM2015 (while I was studying my MA at Central Saint Martins in London)… I am so very glad I didn’t stop from there, my work being a creative, collaborative practitioner has led me one step closer to the dream. Guidance and support I have received from both academia networks at CSM and Soton are invaluable. Being invited to be one of the speakers at Future Cities Southampton, it excites me greatly, as I have officially found the closest community and workplace where I belong, right within the neighborhood and at home in Southampton.

Being part of the Future Cities Southampton РCommunity Network event initiated by University of Southampton and Southampton City Council, as the founder and director at Mutrend Lab, I will be sharing my thoughts as a social innovation practitioner and proposing a new idea for the future of City of Southampton:  A different creative and exchange hub for Southampton.

The event will be hosted on 22nd February 2018, at the newly opened John Hansard Gallery’s Studio 144 on Above Bar Street in Southampton. Anyone who is interested in participating, you can book your place in advance from eventbrite.
