Closing events – Barcelona, Brussels, Lisbon


At the end of the fourth and final year of the A-Place project, there will be a series of closing events held in three partner cities - Barcelona, Brussels, and Lisbon. These events aim to showcase and reflect on the collective work done during the project.


The gatherings will bring together project partners, invited experts, and community representatives to discuss key issues related to the project and the achieved results. Some of the topics that will be discussed include:


- The role of placemaking in promoting participatory design, spatial justice, and the appropriation of public space.

- The importance of educational and creative activities in public spaces that engage artists and creators from all academic levels, including formal and informal education.

- Representing a sense of place through various art forms, such as music, photography, video, art performance, and sculpting.


These sessions will be free of charge and open to all interested participants
