About the Independent School for the City
The Independent School for the City is a post-graduate educational platform for urban research, development and activism, based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The school is initiated by Crimson Historians and Urbanists and ZUS (Zones Urbaines Sensibles) and is rooted in their practices of combining a critical and activist approach to effect real change in the city through architectural and planning projects. The Independent School for the City is founded on a strong belief in an incremental instead of a tabula rasa approach to city planning which blurs the lines between critique and practice on the one hand, and research and policy on the other. Through a diverse series of activities, the Independent School for the City offers a modular program for an international group of professionals, students and other interested parties with a background in urban studies such as architecture, sociology, history, photography, art or urban planning. The Independent School for the City is deliberately not academically accredited, for it to function unimpededly as an academic sanctuary that gives its participants and teachers the opportunity for personal development, and that creates the flexibility to respond directly to current events.
