Human Cities/Smoties - Creative works with small and remote places

Human Cities, founded in 2006 as a platform of interdisciplinary exchange, examines the liveability of public spaces by using participatory design as a tool to supply systems of process and innovation. SMOTIES project applies this approach to 10 small and remote EU places which are depopulated, relationally remote and depositories of a material and immaterial culture that risks being undervalued, not consolidated, and hence lost. They will benefit by the design of cultural and creative innovations, developing synergies between local stakeholders and the project partners as ​interlocutors, activators, and supporters​ of creative works to be anchored in public spaces through a shared methodology that will guarantee a process of engaging local communities for audience development, transnational mobility of creative professionals, masterclasses and training for capacity building purposes and an evaluation of the impact in order to generate a long-term legacy in the involved contexts.
