The start of the regional project "Our City, Our Scene"

ngns

Belgrade Flower Festival started the regional project “Our City – Our Stage” with the aim to develop a series of socially engaged creative interventions in the public spaces in cooperation with citizens and artists in the realm of urban design. 

"Our City, Our Scene" will be conducted in the four regional cities in partnership with: Arch Commune – Centre for Architecture and Culture from Podgorica,  Center For Environment from Banja Luka and Coalition for Sustainable Development from Skoplje.  The project is funded by Balkan Arts and Culture Fund BAC. BAC is supported by the Swiss Government through the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the European Cultural Foundation (EFC).

Our network of partners from the four Balkan cites will promote and execute creative interventions as innovative and participative solution for the improvement of public space and use of commons as a place for the culture and art. With a support of local urban residents, young professionals and civil servants, this project seeks to establish a good practice network across the Balkans region that will support development and implementation of participatory urban design processes.  

Important part of the project and supporting campaign is the interactive web platform NasGrad.org, an user friendly tool to map the particular public spots in the four cities, and to identify citizen’s needs in the public spaces. Data extracted from the platform NasGrad.org will help us to focus and help interested citizens in the local communities to articulate their needs and create a particular activation of chosen spaces through a dialogue. Next step will be forming teams to develop installations, performances and place making strategies for the particular public spaces. 

We believe that the creative place making and the good management of commons brings communities together, provides meeting places and fosters social ties, shaping the cultural identity and the unique character of our cities.
