After spending one month in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), understanding its urban reality and life in the favelas, for the first time ever European Alternatives lands in Mexico City!
Niccolò Milanese and Ségolène Pruvot will spend one month in America with our project Co-Creation that aims to ‘co-create’ understanding about marginalised neighbourhoods and to address disadvantage.
It won’t be the first time that we work in Latin America, as in 2015 we developed our artistic project Transnational Dialogues that aim to build bridges between Europe and the Americas.
With Co-Creation the objectives are now a bit different. It aims to address urban and territorial stigmatisation, by bringing together different actors such as researchers, policy makers, residents and artists, to ‘co-create’ understanding about marginalised neighbourhoods and to address disadvantage. The partner organisations include City Mine(d) (Brussels), Tesserae (Berlin); and three Universities: University of Bath (Bath), University of PUC-Rio (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, Mexico City).
This week, Niccolò will also present, discuss and debate about our book ‘Citizens of Nowhere‘ and the role of transnational politics in a global society.
More information about about Co-Creation can be found on the website.
