Urban Cultural Planning wants to use culture and creativity to make living better in the neighbourhoods in cities or in rural areas in the Baltic Sea Region. The main objective of the project is to advance the capacity of public authorities in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR)and local NGOs and associations to collaborate on citizen driven cultural planning.
10 Urban Labs will be organized within the project to adapt cultural planning methods for wider use in the BSR, including topics of cultural mapping, cultural visioning, stimulating local social innovation etc. 12 BSR Demonstrator projects in the neighbourhoods of cities and towns will address challenges such as shrinking cities, social inclusion, gentrification, lack of community life and others.
