CityMakers: Shared Cities

Supported by Goethe-Institut, and co-hosted by reSITE in cooperation with CAMP (Centrum architektury a městského plánování). This event takes place as part of the Shared Cities Ideas Yards.

“We want to use people's ideas in the city. We want to share those ideas between people. And, as architects we want to create better public spaces for people.”
Martin Barry

An increasing number of citizens want to play an active role in making their own city. For these CityMakers public space projects are a great way of getting involved in city development. Sharing high-quality public space strengt-hens social bonds, empowers communities, and can even serve as a turning point around which a city reinvents itself. Some initiatives, for example street festivals, last only a couple of days. Other projects, such as the conversion of a derelict piece of land into an adventure playground, takes years to develop. Many success-ful changes can become permanent.
What legal issues do CityMakers need to be aware of when working with public space? What is the legal framework for organizing temporary interventions? What are the tools for implementing permanent interventions? Shared Cities: Creative Momentum project partners and CAMP have invited experts from Berlin and Prague to share their insight and practical experience in urban hacking, placemaking, and of course, to discuss citymaking with you! The event is a part of the Shared Cities Ideas Yards.

What is the Shared City? Martin Barry

Share your heart. Share your city.

What Does Shared City Mean? Jakob Racek
