Agile City explores inclusive city development through projects, events and research.
We aim to support critical dialogue, experimentation and cross-disciplinary learning.
Our work includes running Test Unit, an annual summer school; developing Civic House as workspace, cafe and venue; and working collaboratively to set up the Glasgow Canal Project – a local co-operative to support the democratic development of the area.
Our work is underpinned by the following principles:
⟶ Respect of resources and people
⟶ Learn through collaboration
⟶ Instigate opportunities
⟶ Provide space for the unexpected
⟶ Holistic design
⟶ Organisational autonomy
⟶ Balance between cultural, social and commercial activity
Agile City is a non-profit community interest company based in Speirs Locks, north Glasgow. It is run by a small team with support from an invaluable network of collaborators and partners.
