SHARED CITIES: Creative Momentum (SCCM) is on a mission to improve the quality of life in European cities. By exploring aspects of sharing and urban design we are creating new ways of living in our cities. Together.
Shared Cities: Creative Momentum is a seminal four-year cultural project that brings together eleven partners from seven major European cities: Belgrade, Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Katowice, Prague and Warsaw. SCCM establishes an international network for a creative discourse at the intersection of architecture, art, urbanism and the sharing economy to contribute to the transformation of urban spaces. From 2016 to 2020 more than 150 activities will take place, encompassing festivals, films, exhibitions, artists’ residencies or case studies. The project’s ambition is to show urban citizens that their participation and cooperation is essential for creating a pleasant and valuable urban environment. The project’s creative centre is Prague where the Goethe-Institut, Czech Centres and the reSITE organisation form its core team.
