As participation has become hegemonic – from prosumers to crowdsourcing, from collaborative practices to civic media – there is a demand for a redefinition of the notion of participation itself. The much-discussed idea of collective creativity should now be explored and developed into transformative actions. With the goal of raising awareness being no longer enough, we want to look into practices of situated, world-making interventions that redefine reality and can have an impact on everyday life.
We invite artists to submit projects that enable citizens to experience new ways of interaction with the urban environment and to understand, respond to, evaluate and question the transformations that the city is undergoing.
