Swapping crisis for city


For instance, the Exchange Crisis Suburb is a project of the Goethe-Institut that brings together initiatives, artists, designers, activists and many other citizens from Lisbon, Madrid, Toulouse, Turin and Berlin. It establishes a knowledge and production platform to discuss what methods work, and how cooperation is formed between private initiative and government agencies. The involvement of the various cities shows the way the European crisis is expressed in different urban contexts with social polarization and dwindling civic spirit. We-Trade seeks to actively involve citizens to create new meanings within urban spaces. Their focus is also grounded on the real experiences of the city.
