Powered by Shared Cities: Creative Momentum
This October’s Pecha Kucha Night takes place at a special location. The event will open the Rákóczi tér market hall for a night to show innovative urban projects from Hungary and the neighboring countries that bring new methods and tools to city development. From transforming street furniture to the renewal of Bratislava’s Old Market Hall, from the secret life of Csepel Művek to the future of Rákóczi tér, several speakers will provide insight to the development of cities in the Visegrád region. You can read more about the program that connects many of these below, at the introduction of the Shared Cities: Creative Momentum project.

Shared Cities: Creative Momentum
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.

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-lnstitut, Czech Centres and the reSITE organisation form its core team.
