Crowd-Creative Urban Design
Public space is a commons with a cultural, artistic, social, mnemonic and environmental dimension. Public space is received as our day-to-day activities, as “our place” – a place of community building, social life, art and culture. In this context, the meaningful and creative participation, of those who use and give life to public space appears to be more than necessary.
The main goal of this toolkit is to provide the methodological steps and propose tools and technics in order to perform collective public space design through artistic expression.
It is developed as a guide that can be used by different teams, academics, students, foundations, artistic groups, associations in neighborhoods and young researchers in different cases of participatory workshops and projects.
It operates as a tutorial and a repository to relevant material that will support grass-root movements, young researchers and practitioners in the fields of urban planning, urban design, environmentalism and climate change adaptation, including participatory planning and art methodologies as an integral part of their approach.
