WHAT IS reSITE?

reSITE is a nonprofit platform working at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, politics, culture, and economics. reSITE acts as a catalyst for social action and innovative leadership; an international platform to exchange ideas about making cities more livable, competitive and resilient. We protect and promote public space, architecture, and sustainable development in cities. Based in Prague, we are at the forefront of innovative changes in Central and Eastern Europe and for the first time in the Czech Republic, are fostering collaboration, dialogue and social innovation between the public and experts in fields of design, finance and development, municipality leadership and community advocacy. Why? To stimulate action for sustainable urban design and therefore better cities. We stand for public space.

reSITE highlights how collaboration and design thinking can improve life in cities. We advise and develop leaders across the public, private, civic sector. We organize conferences, festivals, workshops, design competitions, urban games, films, bike rides, discussions, exhibitions & public space interventions.

#SharedCities

Shared Cities: Creative Momentum is on a mission to improve the quality of life in European cities. By exploring aspects of sharing and urban design we are creating new ways of living in our cities. Together.

In fall 2016 we launched Shared Cities: Creative Momentum. This seminal four-year cultural project, curated by reSITE, brings together eleven partners from major cities throughout Europe – Belgrade, Berlin, Budapest, Bratislava, Katowice, Prague and Warsaw, six countries in total. The consortium will have four years to galvanize individuals and their communities through cultural, architectural and artistic events in these cities.

Expect artist residencies, workshops, hacking city furniture, new types of publications, exhibitions, a film and much more! The partners will focus on reworking the numerous components, including the potential of data, which form shared city spaces. Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, this ambitious project aims to define innovative, bolder visions for the future of Central Europe’s cities, developed by the people that know them best. Its creative center will be in Prague under the leadership of the Goethe-Institut, Czech Centres and reSITE.

„The ambition of Shared Cities: CreativeMomentum is to continue a creative discourse at the intersection of architecture, art, urbanism and the collaborative economy for urbane citizens and to show them that their participation and collaboration is essential for creating a pleasant and valuable urban environment.
Martin Barry, the head of reSITE
