Day 1: The Borders We Cross

Great start to the workshop, with discussions about concepts and perceptions surrounding borders. We found a lot of interesting contrasts rooted in language and in culture, leading us to conclude that visible and invisible borders are highly socially constructed which need to be tactically addressed in context specific ways.

Some of the most significant borders in Moscow identified by the group were:

The Ring Roads
The River
Railway stations
Public Parks
Construction 
Industrial 
Roofs
Calm Spaces
‘Face Control’
Privatized Spaces
Cultural (religious, linguistic divisions and exclusion)
