The focus of the project is to create a strong connection between residence and specialized people through a talk and different workshops about the community space perception and participation stimulating a critical reflection. Second step will be an upgrade in Padova with the creation of a permanent MULTIETNIC GARDEN (seed from different countries sent by the same resident involved into the project) and with a creative recycling workshop.

The Nizanerie

The project consists in revealing a place, the Paul Nizan Street, and getting the residents involved in the transformation of their neighbourhood. It offers the residents an opportunity to meet and to have solidarity initiatives on a large scale of the common space (public space, vacant ground floor…). The project brings together the authors of the city, whether they are residents or institutions. It plays the role of a mediator and negotiator between those who live in the city and those who make the decisions, in a neighbourhood in the middle of an urban transformation.

The city is yours

The city is yours is a mobile cultural center with the purpose of taking the participants to undiscovered places in their own city as a way to create social mobility and break down segregation walls. That way participants get the opportunity to form their opinion based on their own experiences rather than on stereotypes and prejudices. We use hip hop culture with focus on breakdance as a platform to create a new and natural interaction among people beyond the district boundaries. Everybody can make a unique interpretation from dance grounds and, in this way, have the freedom to create and find himself in the process.

Circus Giovanni

Circus Giovanni – a multinational group of 18 young people – is composed by artists, musicians, clowns, dancers and jugglers. We meet once a week in Vienna (Austria) to improve our skills and to discuss our next projects. Our mission is to give our audience the feeling that everybody can be an artist, and that it is great fun to be creative and active. Another very important aspect of our circus is, that we are organized in a direct and democratic way. The equality of each person is really important for us, so we don’t need a head because everyone should be able to realize his*her ideas.

A fitness trail without a dime

"Rebuilding Curonian fitness trail without spending a dime" : Curonian island is a place of nature in Lithuania, in the list of UNESCO guarded territories that has to be taken care of by people and government. There were four fitness trails in the whole Curonian island built about twenty years ago. Yet only the remains are left now. Local government does not take this into serious consideration of rebuilding and saving the uniqueness of the land. Most of the time their answer is “We do not have money for this”. So… we decided to show them how it can be done without spending a dime!

The project brings together law students and recent graduates with vulnerable groups of the society in order to help them benefit from mutual cooperation and therefore foster social cohesion.

Zines of the Zone

ZINES OF THE ZONE is a european library specialized in self-edited photograph books (or photozine). It not only shows the images, as it also uses the book as an experimentation field. These strange objects, produced in most of the cases on a low cost basis and limited in the number of copies, draws always the attention of collectors. Victims of their success, they get quickly out of stock and inaccessible. We want to make these objects visible, permanent and to be freely consulted.
