PDC Place North America is being organised to celebrate and learn from community-based information and resource sharing within urban settings in North America. By organising two hybrid events in Detroit, MI, USA, and Toronto, ON, Canada, we hope to bring participants together to reflect on how specific forms of information and resources get made, shared, and exchanged in urban settings. We will use art installations, teach-ins, and workshops to create a comprehensive understanding of community-based information and resource sharing in urban settings and present our findings at the PDC showcase during the conference.
