Invitation to seminar: How we gather


Welcome to open seminar with visiting PhD researcher Kirsty Moegerlein (from RMIT University in Melbourne) August 27th 2018 from 11.00 – 12.00 in CODE (room 90. 3. 15), Fabrikmestervej 6, 1435 Copenhagen K.

Kirsty writes: This PhD research began with a hunch – that ritual could offer something to communities engaged in transition towards sustainable futures. What emerged through collaborative practice was the creation of a ‘gathering place’ – called The Weekly Service – a weekly event that invites stories, stillness and conversation. After 70+ events, I will reflect on what I call a topology of gathering – the doorway, portal and container – which mark out different spaces for design activity, aimed towards enabling sociality and the potential for future-making.



Kirsty Moegerlein is a multi-disciplinary designer who is interested in how we can curate spaces to facilitate meaningful dialogue surrounding the context of these times. Through a practice-led PhD at RMIT she is exploring how practices of gathering can be articulated and visualised via her work with The Weekly Service – a small community in Melbourne. She’s interested in how poetic responses that use story, atmosphere, and conversation can open up spaces for greater intimacy and connection, leading to unexpected possibilities.
