Bronwyn spoke to Sophie Jeram, an artist and curator from Letting Space and Urban Dream Brokerage who is is also working towards a PhD in Landscape Architecture on the commoning of land. She spoke about the distinction between pulblic and common space, as well as her personal experience creating such projects since 1993. Most recently, Sophie has been part of the Vogelmorn Community Group, which started in a converted bowling club, and served as a case study for the interview.
Last week Sophie spoke as part of an international webinar hosted by the Journal of Public where speakers from a number of countries and disciplines webinar discussed the way we interact in public space in the current and post COVID-19 conditions. This formed basis for the beginning of the interview.
