SHARED CITIES: Creative Momentum (SCCM) is on a mission to improve the quality of life in European cities. By exploring aspects of sharing and urban design we are creating new ways of living in our cities. Together.
Living in the city, we’re used to sharing – green spaces, bus seats, even the air we breathe. We know that sharing a car or a flat can make it worthwhile. Instead of owning a bike we can rent one, too. Sharing has become a part of our urban life.
Shared Cities: Creative Momentum brings together eleven organisations from Belgrade, Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Katowice, Prague and Warsaw to create a space for architecture, art, urbanism and the sharing economy and to contribute to the transformation of urban life.
By sharing ideas, state-of-the art best practices and building networks Shared Cities: Creative Momentum assists these Central European cities in finding innovative ways of urban planning and policy-making. Another ambition of the project is to show urban citizens that their participation and cooperation is essential for creating a pleasant and valuable urban environment.
From 2016 to 2020 more than 150 activities introducing innovative ways in urban planning and enhancing the participation of citizens take place: festivals, films, exhibitions, artists’ residencies or case studies. Architects and citizens design their ideal city. Artists and the public in Berlin devise radical new forms of street furniture. A new digital map is created in Katowice to portray (in)formal actors in cultural and creative industries. Bratislava researches new strategies for reviving underutilized communist era buildings. Budapest tests ways how NGOs can reinvigorate a former industrial area…
