Shared Responsibility

The Budapest study explores platforms that enable and enhance civic, institutional and private stakeholder participation in urban governance on a collaborative basis.

The Budapest study explores platforms that enable and enhance civic, institutional and private stakeholder participation in urban governance on a collaborative basis. Activities involve 3 key programs complementing each other by providing a digital infrastructure for citizen involvement, helping cultural institutions connect with urban issues, and developing an actionable network of private stakeholders for the sustainable redevelopment of a former industrial site.

The Better Budapest platform (civic element) will be an online platform for public participation. Expansion to other partner cities is ensured by cooperation with partners Aliancia Stara Trznica and Miasto Ogrodow.

Working with the City Festival (institutional element), there will be 2 annual festivals that will engage various actors in cultural and creative fields to create programs, which are directly connected to issues of urban development and public space. Our Budapest partners will work with NGOs, institutions and small businesses whose work is valuable for a shared vision of the city, but are currently not active in this area.

Csepel Works Program (private element) ) targets a network of local businesses, tenants and associated organizations who see themselves as caretakers of the former brownfields’ heritage to develop models that help them use the brand to benefit their businesses and livelihood in the area.

City: Budapest
Partners: KéK, Mindspace
Cooperation: reSITE, Aliancia Stara Trnica, Miasto Ogrodow, Curatorial Lab

Rakoczisquaring in practice, Budapest. Shared Cities Diaries #4

For four days in September, the Rákóczi square hosted workshops, pop-up stores, idea-generating presentations and international guests reflecting on the effects the construction of Budapest’s 4th metro line station has had on the square itself and the surrounding neighbourhood.
