Creative research event from 17.30 to 22.30 at 't Gemaal' (Pretorialaan 141, Rotterdam), hosted by TENT. 
At this event, the new book 'Real projects for real people, Volume 1' about The Patching Zone was released.

The Patching Zone founder Anne Nigten decided to share our experiences of the first two years of our organization. Thanks to the contributions of team members and mentors the book will provide a unique peek into The Patching Zone’s kitchen. It showcases ideas, sketches and photo essays, builds on the processpatching theory and reports about our daily practice. The book will be published by V2_ publishing.

This will be followed by lectures and discussions around two chapters of the book; making as research and playing as research. The debate focuses on making and playing as research in urban transformations processes, while this will be connected with our practice by the demonstrations and work in progress presentation.
