    to explore the potentials of practices centred on individual and collective agency This website was established by a group of architects and spatial thinkers with the intention of offering a doorway to this growing sphere of agency defined here as spatial resistance by drawing in perspectives encompassing spatial analysis advocacy critical speculation and physical intervention It is hoped that rather than simply offering an echo chamber for debate this deliberate juxtaposition of speculation with practice may highlight fragments of possible spatial futures that already exist and how in the midst of the myriad forces continually reshaping Israel Palestine these might represent seeds of an alternative future Contribute The aim of this website is to build a collective platform to share original analysis mappings photographic studies and other projects that trace the contours of the spatial struggle in Israel Palestine and to support relevant events and actions wherever they may occur We are actively seeking to build a network of regular contributors particularly those who can offer engaging perspectives from first hand experience on the ground whether in Arabic English or Hebrew We also welcome guest contributions and cross postings from other sites If you would like to be involved please get in touch at info at arenaofspeculation org You can also sign up for email updates and connect with us on facebook and twitter Contributors Profiles of the people involved in this site Contact How to get in touch with us Contents Intro Contributors Contact Perspectives Research More Connect Email Updates sending Name E mail Latest Posts Fighting new Nakba in the Negev Building Resilience in Hebron On Strategies of Spatial Appropriation and Resistance in Palestine Parallel Walks in Al Khalil Considering the Political Agency of Residual Landscapes in the West Bank Ramallah The Transforming City Today in Palestine More
