Up to a certain point, the way we move to cities is the way we live cities. We choose our transportation based on the time, the safety of the way etc. From home to work or to the school, from work to a leisure activity, to visit a friend, regardless of where we are going, we always think about the best way to commute and get there.
However, getting around the city is not a democratic act, yet. Living in the periphery is not the same as living in the city center, and such a distinction implies the time of travel, the costs and the supply of the types of transportation that we will have access to. On the other hand, and simultaneously, new forms of mobility emerge every day that are not always consensual in the urban context where they arise.
In this sense, cities are constructed, and are always in transformation, thinking about possible forms of mobility. However, these constructions do not always respond to everyone in the same way; making the city an unequal product for mobility. It should also be noted that mobility itself is experienced differently and unequally, whether by race, gender, class or other issues.
Thinking about these and other topics is the challenge that we have launched for the 2nd edition of the Urban Audiovisual Festival, which will talk about Urban Mobility. We invite you to submit your audiovisual projects and have a closer read to this extended call.
Have a look at the important dates before your submission.
