Pear River Delta

TIMC PEARL PakMap is a project co-designed by the This Is My City and the PakMap collective to be an intrinsic and evolving part of the yearly This Is My City Festival– Intercity Creative Network (TIMC-ICN) with the purpose of conducting observation and research on the PRD borderscape and engage different publics in multiple ways.


In December 2017, for the first time, TIMC-ICN Festival crossed borders and happened in two cities Shenzhen and Macau, and in the same days was the opening of the 2017 Bi-City Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism (Cities, Grow in Difference). The different phases of the project will take place between the 11th and 12th editions of TIMC-ICN Festival, i.e. a workshop with several lectures followed by fieldwork in Macau and Zhuhai, window exhibitions in Macao and Shenzhen and a transmedia exhibition “disseminated” in the PRD. The project will build on the “subversive” potential that these two events have to activate people’s desires and curiosity, make them realize taken-for-granted assumptions, develop their critical thinking and generate new non-mainstream identities.
