Simulizi Mijini / Urban Narratives: Reconfiguring Urban Heritage from Below

Urban Heritage: What is it? Whose is it? Who defines it?
Urithi m’jini: Ni nini? Wa nani? Nani anafafanua?

How can it build inclusive cities?
Urithi m’jini unawezaje kujenga miji shirikishi?

The Dar Centre for Architectural Heritage (DARCH) in collaboration with the Technical University Berlin and the Architects Association of Tanzania have the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the International Symposium Simulizi Mijini / Urban Narratives. We will present international examples of inclusive heritage practices and discuss their relevance for the context of Dar es Salaam.
