It was an innovative European prototyping project designed by Bepart and Mjestimice with the aim of structuring and organizing activities and strategies aimed at involving communities in decision-making processes and improving communication between the city and its citizens. The process focused on creating new models of participatory urban regeneration, stimulating the contamination of ideas and promoting active involvement of the communities themselves. This prototyping process was developed over the course of three years through a series of meetings held in different European cities: Milan, Palermo, Zagreb, Leeuwarden, Leipzig, and Athens.
Milan, Leeuwarden, Leipzig, Athens
During the meetings held in Milan, Palermo, Zagreb, Leeuwarden, Leipzig and Athens, various artistic and cultural activities from all over Europe were involved and compared in order to enrich the debate and foster the sharing of experiences.
This culminated in Athens, where a major exhibition was held at the Bageion Hotel. The event provided an opportunity to present the results achieved and celebrate the work done by the different communities involved in the project.
In summary, Ligth Paths represented an important European initiative that promoted the active participation of communities in urban regeneration and fostered a constructive dialogue between the city and its citizens through the creation of new models of engagement and the enhancement of artistic and cultural activities.
