#ShareTheSpace
In 2017 AIR Wro focuses on contemporary urban identity and culture with the urbanity being defined as a set of characteristics, issues and tasks related to particular city – but also a city conceived as common space – jointly described and designed. Common for specific group of inhabitants, but also for inhabitants of different cities concerned about common topics and phenomena. The concept of city is intended to form a starting point for activities related to research and analysis of modern cities, diagnosis and reflection on their condition, and the level of public and civic awareness, their inhabitants’ involvement and participation in urban projects and initiatives, a sense of co-responsibility for a shared space – understood as public sphere and, at the same time, community.

Key words for the call: urban identity and culture, networking, community, ecology, green philosophy, self-organisation, collectiveness, public space, innovative solutions for cities, activism, guerrilla initiatives, artistic practices in a contemporary urban environment.

Goal of the residency:
City and its culture can be a starting point for artistic, cultural and social activities rooted in dialogue and mediation. We invite artists interested in urban scene to create a new project in Wrocław.
