Who decides how we reside?


The staff of a traditional hotel in downtown Marseille, the children in Istanbul’s district Tarlabaşı and the neighbours around Kottbusser Tor, Berlin: Is there a connection between these urban protagonists? What are their struggles? How do they perceive their environment?

In a Skype talk, the participants of “We decide how we reside” explored and discussed the scope, challenges and interrelations of their projects: Building relations in the neighbourhood and coping with change in the urban context were two major similarities that appeared in the discussion.

Also the role of the projects themselves was critically reflected: What are their goals and limitations? How do cultural interventions in such neighbourhoods influence urban change? We are looking forward to the public workshop on October, 29, to hear more about these topics!
