The journal aims to encourage researchers, artists, and those involved in urban planning to seek cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural practices aimed at fostering the sustainable development of vibrant, livable cities and the promotion of cultural continuity. Articles spanning the wide and diverse field of urban culture and the arts as a tool to promote community and individual well-being, health, and diversity are welcome. The below list is offered as evocative guidelines rather than implying requirements. Click to download the pdf of the below call.
