Human Cities Wrap Up

In March, the Human Cities Festival took place in Brussels. One of the major components of the festival was to activate the public space in a diverse amount of ways. The workshop we participated in was called Peter and Gisela. This involves various ways of engaging with the public, from gymnastics, dancing and singing.

Human Cities Festival took place on March 15th and 16th 2012. Many people from diverse backgrounds and countries came together to share their views in a symposium style on the theme 'Reclaiming the Public Space'. There was a practical side of the festival, where conference participants went out into Brussels public space to engage people in various activities or to simply 'activate' the public space. There was some beautiful events that took place and this was a highlight of the conference. There was public art displays, performance art and simply engaging people in various activities.
