In collaboration with the Library of Almere, INTI is pleased to offer a new course for inhabitants and other people who are interested in Almere.
Almere is, similar to every other city, the result of a combination of deliberate choices and coincidences. The development of the city is therefore much less transparent compared to the promises made beforehand in spatial plans or outlines. In the context of Almere this lack of transparency is even increased by the speed with which this new town has been developed. To give an overview of and some calm in this urban whirlwind INTI and the Library of Almere offer a course of six lectures. The next course ‘Learning from Almere’ will start in January 2011.
The course offers city inhabitants and other people interested in Almere a unique opportunity to learn and understand the development of this unique city. The course is structured along important themes in (the development of) Almere that will be presented, analyzed and discussed by several experts.
The course consists of six lectures by experts in a specific field or theme. Every lecture will address a certain element of the history, building, governance and management of this city. The course will be moderated and hosted by the staff of both International New Town Institute (INTI) and the Library of Almere.
Overall purpose of the course is to inform participants but also to enhance their fascination and understanding of Almere.
