“Urban spaces in action” is the latest initiative of Komunitas Association – an interdisciplinary project, at the intersection between urbanism, urban anthropology, architecture and non-formal education. The project comes as a response to certain urban problems identified by the organization in its work from the past 7 years, through social research combined with projects or experiments of urban education and community development. The project is developed in the period 1 May 2014 – 30 October 2015 and the areas in which activities are taking place are 3 neighbourhoods in Bucharest: Tei, Tineretului, Timpuri Noi.
The project is coordinated by Komunitas Association, in partnership with ArtWe Association, tranzit.ro Association, Bucharest’s Municipal Department for Sport and Youth and it is supported by the architectural duo studioBASAR.
The project’s main objectives aim to activate the urban spaces in the three neighbourhoods through interdisciplinary activities, urban interventions and community events, in parallel with the involvement of over 100 young people, in activities of alternative education, based on the methods of urban pedagogy conceived by Komunitas Association.
The schedule of the launching event includes:
- A detailed presentation of the project, with a contextualization of the three neighbourhoods, realized by Komunitas Association and studioBASAR;
- Short introductions by the project partners: tranzit.ro, ArtWe, Bucharest’s Municipal Department for Sport and Youth;
