43. Making Neighborhood CUI

Art And Citizen Participation And Urban Renewal Project

Colectivo Urbano Itinerante (CUI) - Fundación AVINA

It’s a participative project done by from residents for residents. Faced with a very particular urban situation, where public space has lost its role of social cohesion, it seems essential to rethink the city from its base, as a space of freedom where human relations are the sustenance of their identity. It provides an opportunity to create citizenship empowerment and appropriation based on the development of a process. Benefits: •Awareness of gender problem and city rights. •Long term public space improvement. The legacy is people empowerment to look after their interests and needs thus they can improve their quality of life and exercise their right to the city.
