We’re still buzzing with excitement from our Shift Culture! Artivism & Campaign Design workshop last Friday at @werkstatt_hds! An incredible group of people came together and were super energized to co-create culture change through art ✊🔥 A huge thank you to our Dream Team, @cleobarnett from @amplifierart and Guerrilla Foundation’s Ivan March – for being so inspiring and creating a beautiful, brave space for magic to happen ✨🌈
This is just the beginning! Stay tuned for more collective action happening soon 💪🌏

We’re in Praga, one of Warsaw’s poorest and fastest changing districts, talking to community initiatives trying to help connect the city’s revitalization projects to the needs of residents. This is the beautiful home of the Zmiania Foundation, a self-organized community center that collects books for prisoners and other marginalized groups. “The revitalization of Praga is going very fast but not attending the needs of the community,” they say. .

When actors of urban change visit each other and then magic happens… 😍⠀
Paco’s Pop-Up Café was a spontaneous street placemaking experiment as Paco & Oscar from #TeamValencia visited @nabolagshager and #TeamOslo on a lovely late summer day. The free café was set up in front of a school and was a big hit with passers-by, with delicious Mexican food, games, and good stories from neighbors, teachers and students. So glad our program brought them together and the synergies continue beyond their original projects! ✨⠀

Last week, #TeamChisinau inaugurated #CasaMicle, a pavillion and meeting space where people can learn more about their vision to turn Veronica Micle Street into a pedestrian zone. 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏽‍♂️🚶🏻‍♂️🚶🏾‍♀️
During the Sidewalk Forum, Architects, experts in urbanism and civic activists participated expressing their own ideas and views regarding pedestrian streets and public spaces. The adults, alongside with children, valued this amazing opportunity to have, at least for a day, the street as a pedestrian space. They played on it, engaged in long walks and conversations and drew with colored chalk on asphalt. .

Yesterday, we explored the port city of Rijeka and learned from @rijeka2020 and @deltalab_rijeka about an area called “Sweet and Salt” where the river meets the sea, an industrial area with many abandoned spaces that they are now reclaiming for the local community. One of their plans is to restore access for residents to the seaside and riverside for swimming, leisure and more — through simple and cheap interventions, using mostly what is already there. Here are some impressions of the day by the best ever @panosgeorgiou ⛵️🌊

It emerged out of nothing last May, and returned to nothing in September. Now, Berlin’s @floatinguniversity is trying to find ways to keep this inner-city offshore laboratory for collective, experimental learning alive. Actor of Urban Change Dorothee Halbrock from @halllohalllohalllo and #TeamHamburg was dean of Floating University’s open programs. She shared with us her impressions of the summer as well as the project’s outlook for the future. Read her story on our website – link in bio! ⠀

Sebastian and Naomi were just in #Hamburg on a (not so) secret mission. Great things are in the works and we’re excited to explore with @halllohalllohalllo and @kreativgesellschaft and Kraftwerk Bille to see what can happen in this space!⠀
