In fall 2016 we launched Shared Cities: Creative Momentum. This seminal four-year cultural project, curated by reSITE, brings together eleven partners from major cities throughout Europe: Belgrade, Berlin, Budapest, Bratislava, Katowice, Prague and Warsaw, six countries in total. The consortium will have four years to galvanize individuals and their communities through cultural, architectural and artistic events in these cities.
The partners will focus on reworking the numerous components, including the potential of data, which form shared city spaces. Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, this ambitious project aims to define innovative, bolder visions for the future of Central Europe’s cities, developed by the people that know them best. Its creative center will be in Prague under the leadership of the Goethe-Institut, Czech Centres and reSITE.
What do we do?
We organize artist residencies, workshops, hacking city furniture, we release new types of publications, curate exhibitions, develop a film and much more.
