"The destruction of the social mechanisms that link one's contemporary experience to that of earlier generations, is one of the most characteristic and eerie phenomena of the late twentieth century."
The Age of Extremes, Eric Hobsbawm
Urban Diary is a non-profit initiative. We promote sustainability through narrating community stories, building digital databases, and organising community events. Cities are multi-layered and multifaceted and we use text, audio, illustrations and moving images to capture its complexity. In Urban Diary, we believe that people’s everyday tales are pivotal to comprehending cities and to building a sustainable future.
