THE AUTONOMOUS FABRIC symposium brings together over 20 self-organized practices located in the city of Rotterdam. They will discuss their short and long term impact on the city and society and question their potential as a learning environment.
The majority of self-organized initiatives in Rotterdam has been mapped in the framework of THE AUTONOMOUS FABRIC. The current count is over 85. An (online) publication that maps the growing inventory of these autonomous initiatives in Rotterdam will be launched the same day.
