A new project to continue Banlieue Network’s work on a more international scale: CO-CREATION

Thursday, August 17, 2017

A new four-year research project, funded by the European Commission, has started in January 2017. This project has emerged from the 2013 Banlieue Netwok summer school which aimed to involve artists and creative methodologies in interdisciplinary research projects in vulnerable urbain areas. Funded by the European Commission’s ‘Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Actions’ under the RISE programme, a major part of the study will involve the secondment of researchers between organisations, to exchange knowledge and know-how between disciplines, sectors and continents. The “Co-Creation” project is led by Dr Juliet Carpenter, Urban Geographer at Oxford Brookes University, in partnership with Dr Christina Horvath (PoLIS, University of Bath). It involves seven other organisations across the EU and in Latin America, and runs from 2017-2020. The £500,000 project (€558,000) aims to address urban disadvantage and territorial stigmatization, by bringing together different actors such as researchers, policy makers, residents and artists, to ‘co-create’ understanding about marginalised neighbourhoods and to address disadvantage. The partner organisations include 3 NGOs in the EU: European Alternatives (Paris), City Mine(d) (Brussels), Tesserae (Berlin); and three Universities:  University of Bath (Bath), University of PUC-Rio (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, Mexico City). Over the coming four years, the project will run a series of international events, including five International Conferences, two creative workshops, stakeholder consultations as well as seven case studies in the partner cities with participation from local communities and artists. The first networking event was held at Oxford Brookes University on 16-18 January 2017, with a three-day launch meeting, where all partners contributed to discussions about the project and its development over the coming years.
