  2. Spain has been freezing for the last few years. The temperature has been going down and there was not any social sustainability left to help citizens keep warm. What started as an indoor shivering, it soon leapt off on the street. 2011 was the first step of the change: citizens started warming all together in the streets, reclaiming what belonged to them through demonstrations and the management of the commons in collectiveness. In order to keep the tremor growing, social organizations decided to take the next step toward chasing local institutions. Ganemos and Guanyem are the result of this unending collective shivering. Municipal Tremors is a campaign aiming to amplify and connect different municipal movements in order to get ‘institutions working for citizenship’ restored.'

    Thanks to Elena Cabrera for the voice over of the city.

    This is a project managed by Núria Campabadal, Sofía Coca, Mario Munera, Lucas Tello and Guillermo Zapata.

  3. Rapid, uncontrolled and inegalitarian urbanization in Turkey, and the authoritarian impulse behind it, constitute an immense challenge to all citizens and make our cities virtually unlivable. We foster the idea that the city becomes livable when, as citizens, we make it our own; when we reclaim and create its common (public) spaces together. In this regard, making the city liveable becomes a form of dissent. Our objective is to encourage everyone to take part in ‘placemaking’ activities geared towards co-creating places of encounter in neighborhoods and opportunities to participate in communal activities. We aim to inspire and enable spontaneous urban interventions to turn the streets into the city’s living room. So let’s make this our common purpose and imagine it into being!

    Project & production by Erman Topgül, Arzu Erturan, Gökçe Su Yoğurtçuoğlu, Merve Uçak, Fatih Bilgin, Hande Zerkin, Tan Mavitan.

    Special thanks to İmre Azem as we used footages from his documentary film “Agoraphobia”; and to Ilgın Niron and Özlem Apaydın for acting in the animations.

  4. Imagine a space that is an extension of our home. It is also a field of cooperation among residents, local organisations, communities, institutions, local authorities, cooperatives, businesses and craftsman.
    This is a city – the common good.

    Many groups that have formed in the recent years are realising this idea. For them co-governing, common responsibility, common ownership and cooperation are necessary conditions for building city they want to live. This is a city where problems, voices and will of the citizens are decisive .
