Looking good, #TeamLecce! Afro Carpentieri, Marco Carlino, Francesca Guarascio and Giulia Toscani from @ortijanub are our hosts for the next #ActorsAcademy, which starts in a little over a month in southern Italy. We’re really excited and can’t wait to share all the details of the program, which will explore the urban-rural link through the lens of their project – turning the local botanical garden into a hub for food growing, learning, community building and planning of urban green areas. Stay tuned!

#teamhamburg & @halllohalllohalllo are getting ready for their festival, Hallo: Festspiele in two weeks! They are building a pontoon made from containers on the waterfront of the Bille power plant @kraftwerk_bille – this year‘s edition of the festival deals with the water as a space of opportunity, and seeks to transform it from a social void into a public space. Go check them out! 💦🚤 #urbanism #urbanintervention #publicspace #hamburg #hallofestspiele #urbanchange

What does an urban healing grid look like? #TeamTimisoara is exploring the concept in the The Healing Grid Workshops, a pilot project of their newly created Resilience Lab Timisoara. For two weeks, urban planners, IT specialists, landscape designers, engineers, geographers, academics and citizens are working on solutions for expanding the green infrastructure of the city. With workshops on spatial analysis, 3D mapping, a landscape study and a tactical intervention, they want to transform Timisoara’s grid of drainage channels into a blue-green network with landscaping, ecological, recreational and health promoting values. ⠀
