Meeting pop-up actions to programme activation

Triggers of intermittent programmes at not much used urban landscapes to the resocialisation

The project designs actions to programme activation linked to socio-educational initiatives, as objects that reactivate synergies at not much used urban landscapes to generate activities for neighbours. In this way, the population becomes in community, recovering urban areas which have dimensions larger than a sidewalk and triggering dialogue processes which provide self-managed actions by neighbours.

The cities have oversized spaces waiting for designs for recreational programmes, but these areas will be forgotten due to the lack of use. So, these areas should be inhabited and reactivated by meeting pop-up actions and objects that trigger new activities which can be exhibition, sport or play actions.

From August 2016, we have leaded five workshops, designed seven prototypes and built eight ephemeral performances, generating thought and participation processes in which participate different society actors. Currently, we continue developing prototypes to create these actions.
