Summer is here and we just got back from Placemaking Week Europe 2019, in Valencia!
Europe's biggest conference and fiesta for placemaking was full of inspiring discussions, as also experiments on tools and practices - using as a fieldwork the city of Valencia itself, with main focus on the waterfront (La Marina de Valencia).
UrbanDig travelled to Valencia, between 12-15 of June, to get to know new people, groups, ideas and practices, as also to share our experience on UrbanDig_Omonia.
And of course to play DeMOS | The game -specially adapted to the city's specific context- for one more time!
Special thanks to Vivian Doumpa for the precious support regarding DeMOS' implementation, Kostas Gournianakis for helping during the day of the event, as also the whole team of Placemaking week - and of course, all the beautiful people that we played together!
* DeMOS | The game is a site specific performative game aiming to support communities in collective decision making, as also in soft skills' cultivation.
