Generating new models for participatory development for Ulleung island in South Korea.
The SHINBISUM workshop aims to open an alternative way of thinking about rural development in Ulleung-do and beyond. In a world where participatory practices are becoming the norm, how can the local and international community contribute to shape the future of JangHeung? The residents of Ulleung island, the Korea rural community corporation, Yangji Co., and urbz invite you to imagine with them the future of one of Korea’s most iconic locality. The workshop will produce strategic ideas and design interventions for JangHeung village. If you like to create, ideate, design and build - join us for a 5-day participatory immersion in a place which embodies the struggle of many localities around the world. Like so many other places, Ulleungdo is torn in between urban development and the preservation of their natural environment.
