    Day 1, part 1 of 3 with Gideon Boie (BAVO)
    Title: Redesigning the City
    Date: Saturday 26 September
    Location: Oudezijds Achterburgwal 78a

    Participants: Alexis Blake (artist), Gideon Boie (BAVO), Vinca Kruk & Gon Zifroni (Metahaven). Moderated by Huib Haye van der Werf (NAi)

    The first event of the public program focuses on urban planning, the development of the city's identity and imageries, and the role of Art in this. The idea behind this conversation is to bring together artists and cultural practitioners with a particular vision on the topic and who in their work challenge the current political and economic dynamics shaping the urban environment.

    Gideon Boie (BAVO) speaks of the indispensable function of Art and culture within the urban transformation and gentrification of Amsterdam today. He shows how the new concept of ‘creative coalitions’ helps artists and cultural actors to find their natural, activating role in the social reconquest of our cities. Creative coalitions build synergy between public-private partnerships and the creative sector while preserving for the latter the much desired autonomous sphere of action.
