Project
This 3-year project (2017-2020) aims at developing collective and co-creative images of the future for the design, mediation and archiving of Brussels urban culture, with a focus on the canal area. Specifally, this case study project focuses on the analysis of three aspects for the case study partner CIVA: (1) the future potential of the Brussels canal area as a crossroads of many cultures (micro-context); (2) imaginaries on cultural mediation for potential future target groups (meso-context); and (3) the future relevance of an archiving function in a digital context (macro-context). Through a combination of narrative methods and discourse analysis, serious games techniques, and participative and co-creative methods, and through continuous interaction with diverse stakeholders, the study aims to obtain a deeper insight into the potential images of the future for Brussels urban culture in and around the canal area as these are imagined by (potential) audiences and stakeholders.
