A promotional poster for the Workshop on Structures of Care and Accessibility
In this workshop, members of the worker cooperative game studio SoftChaos will discuss how building structures of care and accessibility into the team's day-to-day working environment can strengthen the creative process of developing games, and will lead participants in interactive exercises to inspire them to bring similar ideas to their own work contexts. The workshop will take place online over two hours.

In Honour of Andrew Levitt, celebrating the legacy of a Professor Emeritus dedicated to teaching on care, and with care.

Please join us for Material Ecology and Deconstruction, the lecture will be held from 6:30pm - 8:00pm in the Main Lecture Hall at the Waterloo School of Architecture.

The lecture will be feature panelists Adam Cornell, unbuilders, Ruth Mandl, CO Adaptive and Moderator: Jane Mah Hutton, Waterloo Architecture

This is the fourth in a series of five lectures on the topic of maintenance.

Praxes of Care asks, “what is an architecture of care?” Over four terms–Fall 2021 to Winter 2023–a series of conversations will bring together two or more architects, designers, researchers, artists, activists, and care workers to discuss care processes according to the themes of Attention, Action, Communication, and Maintenance. The series is curated by faculty, staff, and representatives of student groups: Treaty Lands Global Stories, Bridge, and the Sustainability Collective. Recent calls for change have shifted the discipline toward the underlying social and ecological processes enabled by the production of architecture. By listening to and learning about care practices from interdisciplinary perspectives, we can begin to reshape the discipline of architecture into a form of care.
