What the Human Citizens of Bibao have been successfully experimenting with…

Walking the streets
Bilbao with Human Cities partner BILBAO EKINTZA, contributes with the “Walking the Streets!” project that aims to highlight the intangible heritage of the community of Bilbao La Vieja neighbourhood by means of ten artistic interventions and one urban itinerary that links them. These interventions are the result of a participatory process with the neighbours and socio-cultural agents that took the opportunity to share experiences and design strategies to improve the public space in an inclusive way. Read Bilbao Design Week – Walking the streets

“Altercartography” should be understood as an immersive space where there is a proposal for other forms of looking, inhabiting and developing the city map and, therefore, itinerary from the vision that citizens have of it, from a perspective that goes beyond geography. “Altercartography” was created as a masterclass in the style of a practical and experimental workshop.
