  • How to collaborate with the community with the purpose of designing public spaces?
  • How can art contribute to creating a stronger social fabric?
  • Can cultural operators and artists become interpreters and promoters of a community?

We will reflect on the role of arts and culture in recognising a community’s identity / identities.
