A series of four open meetings dedicated to joint design of Krakow. Anyone wishing to present their vision of the city and life in it can take the floor. Miastoprojektor is an opportunity to confront demands of inhabitants, social activists and visionaries with expert knowledge and artists’ fantasy, a chance to present bold visions concerning the whole city.
The form is very simple:
Every session has its central theme. We suggest focusing on the following problems in the first edition:
1. River actions (activation of embankments, the city front to the Vistula, water in the city, lakes, beaches, barges, balloons);
2. Transport reforms (trams, buses, car parks, bicycles, pavements, cable railway);
3. Green initiatives (parks, green belts, greens, gardens, animals);
4. Spatial interventions (squares, markets, neighbourhood centres, sky scrapers, gentrification, monuments);
- What problems are connected with the above issues, how can we solve them? What is the current state? What is the desired state? What can be improved and how?
Everyone wishing to present their vision of the city, has 10 minutes at their disposal for presentation, as well as a microphone, a computer and an overhead projector.
All presentation applications should be sent in the form of a short document (doc, odt, PDF) to the organiser of the Krakow edition of the debates: firstname.lastname@example.org
Every submitted presentation will be presented by its author.
The only obligatory elements include: the main subject, limited time of presentation, place and time of the debate.
The Department of Proposals created and implemented since 2009 by the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, as part of the Warszawa w Budowie Festival, was the inspiration behind the Miastoprojektor.
The Krakow edition of the debates was launched on the initiative of the City Project members: Marta Skowrońska and Tomasz Lelek in cooperation with Magda Mosiewicz (the originator of the form) and Małgorzata Radkiewicz (Przestrzeń-Ludzie-Miasto Association).
