WeOwnTheCity, Amsterdam: August 24th – October 6th

WeOwnTheCity portrays emerging urban initiatives in Amsterdam, connecting research with photography.

Three Amsterdam-based organizations (CITIES, GUP and ARCAM) work together for the first time to celebrate new urban development trends through an exhibition.

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. This exhibition intends to spark discussions and debates with the goal of understanding how to adapt to a changing urban development context. Questions to ask in pursuing this initiative are: What are the innovative characteristics of emerging urban development initiatives? Can we help decision makers to better understand this inexperienced trend?

Come to the Amsterdam Architecture Center , Prins Hendrikkade 600, Amsterdam on August 24th – drinks are available  from 17:00 on 😉
