Permanent Working Platform Co-creating the city – Right to the Diverse City

14 october
9.00 to 10.30
Venue: 
S5

Description

The right to the diverse city lays firstly on the responsible and shared management of the cultural commons. Yet, it also refers to three different issues: diversity, remembrance/heritage and creativity. Public policies for diverse cities also need to address a key consideration: the exercise of cultural rights and the access to culture. The presence of cultural manifestations accessible to everyone, either in public spaces or facilities (libraries, halls, etc.), stand for a traditional approach of it. The new responsibility of public authorities implies highlighting, facilitating and acknowledging autonomous cultural manifestations in cities. In this way, interculturality can become a tool and place for dialogue among the different cultures and cultural manifestations that inhabit the city, and public authorities can shift its logics and interact with “the commons”.
