Creative Activations of Public Space

We believe that interventions in physical spaces are just as important as those within the world of ideas. This is particularly true within urban environments, where people share many different types of spaces and live within close proximity to one another.

We direct creative activities and projects that help citizens re-imagine how the public spaces of their city can be shaped to promote safety, livability, and wellbeing. In partnership with Swiss artists MATZA, as well as with artists who are local to each city we temporarily reside in, we facilitate the creation of public art installations, photo/video journalism, murals, and other multimedia that probe the question of how public spaces can advance coexistence.
