Expert Public

In search of new models of cooperation between municipalities and the cultural sector, the Bratislava case study tests open data crowdsourcing as a means of gathering reliable data.

In search of new models of cooperation between municipalities and the cultural sector, the Bratislava case study tests open data crowdsourcing as a means of gathering reliable data. Additionally, a transdisciplinary group of experts develops a public architectural competition to meet the challenges one of the largest squares in Bratislava: Namestie SNP. Our European partners from Budapest and Prague will become members of expert panels and act as research partners. They will help with setting surveys and involving students into research. The expert partner on visualization Miasto Ogrodow will advise on clear communication of the case towards the public.

This cooperation case is particularly relevant for cities with weak municipal sector and networked experts working outside the City Hall. It is relevant for cities where new models of public/expert cooperation used for a transparent competition launch are needed. It will built upon previous European examples and methodologies, and, as such, it will be transferable into other European countries under creative commons licenses.

City: Bratislava
Partner: Aliancia Stara Trznica
Cooperation: KeK, Miasto Ogrodow, Vysoka Skola Vytvarnych umeni, Curatorial Lab
Duration: November 2016 – September 2018
