Sidewalk Festival

Vienna, Austria ,2011

Urban places sometimes seem as if they have fixed purposes and regulations, but they are more flexible than you might think. How should we experiment with urban space to explore their potential for human interaction and togetherness and change the city for the better? For example, by hosting a ‘sidewalk festival’, which is exactly what the #gehsteigguerrillos did in Vienna in 2011. Please reach out to us if you know more great examples of urban street transformation!
