The Parliament of Urban Rights by Zuloark is a free-access, temporary debating space constructed of wood, open to anyone in Manchester to use for civic purposes, such as neighbour or friend meetings and assemblies.

The intent of the project is to build a Universal Declaration of Urban Rights, aiming to reach a consensus about regulation of construction, legislation and use of public space.

The Parliament of Urban Rights is a wooden structure built by local activists in Manchester in collaboration with the Zuloark group from Spain. On the Saturday of the City Fictions weekend, people will converge to build the structure in a workshop.

Workshop, Saturday, 10am-6pm
This workshop is looking to engage you in designing and building an urban parliament and learning some of the applied building techniques (woodworking, welding etc). The workshop is open to everyone who's interested in architecture, open source design and handmade urbanism. Report to reception at New Century House on arrival.

Parliament Opens, Sunday, 10am-6pm
On Sunday, it is open to everyone to debate a Universal Declaration of Urban Rights.
