Sarah Pink

The Italian-based Slow City movement has grown since 1999 to now cover more than 161 member towns and 25 countries. Professor Sarah Pink has been using visual, sensory and digital ethnography methods to research the development of Slow Cities since 2005, in the UK, in Spain, with Professor Lisa Servon of the New School in New York, and in Australia with Dr Kerstin Seale and Assoc. Professor Tania Lewis at RMIT. The project has been funded by the Nuffield Foundation in the UK, and supported by Loughborough University, UK, the IN3 in Barcelona and RMIT University in Australia. Outputs have focused on the digital materiality of Slow Cities, notion of the sensory city, indirect activism, the transferability of the Slow City framework for urban sustainability, the ways that engagement with the movement create forms of wellbeing and resilience, the work of the movement can inform design practice and the ways in which the movement enables forms of future-making.
