Clubture Network – Community, Culture, City: Collectively Transforming the New Normal
25 Sep 2020
The City of Zagreb is being profoundly changed by the tragedy that struck it and the project Community, Culture, City: Collectively Transforming the New Normal will engage individuals and organisations on a local, national and EU level in the process of imagining a future of their cities and communities through research, talks and lectures, public campaigning and actions. Culture plays a transformative role, one that advocates for solidarity and acts through processes of participation will be crucial for envisioning just and solidary concepts for the renewal of the city.
They want to incite collective imagination in re-building the narratives of the community, culture and the city. By analysing the current situation and needs of cultural actors nationwide, with a focus on cultural and spatial policies and new models of citizen participation, they will gain crucial inputs for collective formulation of recommendations for cultural system development in the coming years. Through parallel processes of learning and knowledge exchange via online lectures with different EU, national and local actors on cultural policies, spatial policies and democratisation of public and common goods. They will imagine a public campaign that will put the collective practices in the core of their work.
Through monitoring the process of adopting the law on the reconstruction of Zagreb, with a particular focus on spaces for culture and society, they will organise actions and gatherings in Zagreb that aim at pressuring for just and solidary solutions for the renewal of the city.
