From 2022 to 2026, the project will develop cultural approaches to enhance and preserve the ecological value of unused vacant spaces in 9 European Cities: Berlin, Zagreb, Split, Liepaja, Kuopio, Marseille, Florence, Timişoara and Athens. Future DiverCities is the continuation of a first Creative Europe project (2016-2020) implemented successfully by 10 partners in Europe and Canada which has explored new ways to work in challenging urban areas through participatory methodologies and co-designed digital tools. Future DiverCities pilot phase was an initiative of key players in the field of city making and new artistic forms to explore the power of creative innovation in challenging urban spaces.
