Hybrid Heritagescapes as Urban Commons in Mediterranean Cities

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Objective of the Training Event is to discuss about and develop digital interfaces and interactive narratives, which will contribute to the exploitation of heritage in Mediterranean cities for the reactivation of neglected urban green spaces through playful engagement, gamification, and storytelling.

Heritage can be used to influence positively the social cohesion of neighbourhoods as it could be promoted in such a way that, instead of provoking tensions and division, would offer spaces of inclusion, interesting everyday experiences and provide a sense of belonging to socially excluded communities.

The Training Event will study the capacity of ICT for learning and social interaction opportunities in territories of heritage (heritagescapes) that now extend to include urban squares and parks. Overarching goal of this effort is to promote these open air spaces in becoming part of the e veryday life of a city, i.e., part of the network of its communal amenities and common resources, in order to contribute to the well-being and quality of life of citizens.
