Shared Cities: Creative Momentum activities in Belgrade aim to redraw its citizens’ relationships to the city, developing a new urban identity based on the citizens’ right to their city. The public spaces act as a place for economic, social and cultural exchange. SCCM supports citizens’ initiatives by facilitating processes of participation in creating urban interventions for neglected public spaces, giving urban development back into the hands of Belgrade’s citizens. The main goal is to provide a new model for managing urban development where authorities, experts, citizens and developers share responsibilities for the benefit of everyone.
Project Partners in Belgrade
Since its foundation in 1960, ABA has been focused on promoting the architectural profession and implementing contemporary scientific and cultural and professional knowledge. ABA applies a creative approach in the field of architecture and urban planning by organizing competitions, exhibitions, conferences and seminars, publishing and cooperating with international architectural and cultural organizations.
ABA takes part in SCCM in the form of its Belgrade International Week of Architecture (BINA). Founded in 2006, BINA encourages intercultural dialogue, trans-national cooperation and mobility. The festival brings together experts from Serbia and other European countries and Americas, enabling an exchange of ideas and experiences and providing a link between the international and the local creative scene in Serbia which is still recovering from years of isolation.
