We-Traders. Swapping Crisis for City

We-Traders. Swapping Crisis for City

Madrid, Turin, Berlin, Lisbon, Toulouse

The project We-Traders. Swapping Crisis for City connects initiatives by artists, designers, activists and many other citizens from five distinct European contexts. In Lisbon, Madrid, Toulouse, Turin and Berlin the current crisis manifests different facets from empty coffers and social polarisation to a lack of civic sense as a result of excessive growth. In times of such crisis We-Trading is particularly interesting because co-determination becomes co-authoring. We-Trade increases ecological, economic and social sustainability. Any citizen who is actively involved in development, production and exchange assumes responsibility for the outcome.

We-Traders. Swapping Crisis for City creates a knowledge and production platform for current and future We-Traders. Which practices worked well? Can certain elements be replicated elsewhere? How does the collaboration between private initiative and public bodies work out? The exchange of experiences is greatly facilitated by not only focusing on the projects, but also the people behind them.
