Co-designing Our Cities Conference

Cultural Spaces as Homes for Democracy

In February 2021, Trans Europe Halles in co-operation with Region Skane organised the Cultural Creative Spaces and Cities ‘Co-designing Cities Conference‘. The event was live streamed from a studio in Malmö, Sweden.

Over 800 people registered from 67 countries, and in just 17 hours, the digital event welcomed 350 online participants during each of the two days and heard from 45+ inspiring speakers and workshop facilitators.

A range of conversations exploring important topics took place; including the learnings of the Urban Labs journeys, to income to enable grassroots participation, as well as a closing discussion on how the public administration at different levels in the European Union is implementing and encouraging participatory governance.

Some of the main Outputs of the CCSC project were also presented for the first time, including the launch of the book Commons.Between Dreams and Realitythe publication Policy Analysis and Recommendationsand the Online Toolkit

The Conference was recorded (this doesn’t include the workshops) and is now available to watch on Trans Europe Halles Vimeo channel here.
