Are we sick because we are missing home or because our home, our city, is sick? In this walk, we will ask for its history, draw out its symptoms, and discuss potential remedies for homesickness. We will examine our physical surroundings as a mirror into our collective homesickness, try out possible interventions in space and discuss the theoretical perspectives offered by urban theory and environmental psychology.
This walk holds 7 people.

Please meet in the middle of Columbus Park. When you are in the middle of the park, you should find a flagpole-like structure with a small round concrete bench. It is opposite the pavillion. Einat will be sitting there waiting for you.
Einat will give the walk in English but also speaks Hebrew.
