How can we support creative answers to current and future challenges the constantly growing population of urban areas will face in the near future? This is just one of many questions and topics which have been discussed during the international project Shared Cities: Creative Momentum in the past four years. Now the time has come to present the accomplishments. An international festival called Shared Cities: The Finale will take place on October 2nd and 3rd in the city of Prague, Czech Republic.

The two-day festival Shared Cities: The Finale will not only bring together skilled urbanists, curators, and theorists of architecture. It is also open to the public, since the sharing of information, knowledge, governance, space, and infrastructure has become a new imperative in architectural and cultural discourse. The composite format of The Finale consisting of “The Performance,” the launch of “The Atlas,” “The Discussions,” “The Videos,” and “The Party” will strive to awaken people's curiosity, inspire their own activity, and sparkle a critical discussion about the topic of sharing in cities. The Finale includes the following events:

Shared Cities: The Performance

“Virtual Ritual,” Jan Mocek / Sixhouses

“Virtual Ritual” is co-produced by Goethe-Institut, Divadlo Archa, and Sixhouses within the Project “Shared Cities: Creative Momentum”.

When? October 2nd & October 3rd, 20:00

The Launch of the Shared Cities Atlas

“Shared Cities Atlas – Post-Socialist Cities and Active Citizenship in Central Europe”

The “Shared Cities Atlas” applies the new global ‘sharing paradigm’ lodged in architecture and the public sphere to a site-specific situation in seven cities in Central Europe. The ideas of a "right to the city," of common resources, or "the urban commons" illustrate the paradigm shift towards a sharing perspective. In "sharing cities" the emphasis lies in the right to remake the cities as a form of urban social contract with a specific creative or critical agenda. Mapping current practices of sharing and new fields of action in case studies, the book presents creative forms of sharing driven by idealistic positions and collective actions, thus offering new approaches to the sharing of spaces and architecture, experience and knowledge, data, and collective histories.

What? Launch of the “Shared Cities Atlas”
When? October 3rd, 18:00
Where? IPR (Prague Institute of Planning and Development) / CAMP (Center for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning), Prague, Czech Republic
