Background
WeOwnTheCity is an exhibition made by CITIES in cooperation with two other Amsterdam based organisations, GUP and ARCAM. The exhibition is a part of the In.flow.ence research project, which is funded by the European Commission within its MED programme.

WeOwnTheCity maps the development of small-scale initiatives into new types of urban centers by exploring the potential disconnect between local government, public policy and local urban initiators. It intends to spark discussions and debates with the goal of understanding how to adapt to a changing urban development context. The exhibition unfolds the innovative characteristics of emerging urban development initiatives in Amsterdam, connecting research with photography. In this way CITIES wants to support decision makers in their understanding of this yet un-experienced trend.

The exhibition will be running from the 24th of August until the 6th of October at ARCAM in Amsterdam. Afterwards the exhibition will move to Brussels and Marseille.
