The competition Creatives for Vienna – Making Spaces invites to the (further) development of spaces of creative uses.
A Focus on Space
What is it about?
In order to enable sustainable cooperation and inspiring co-creation, we need places where people can meet. What do spaces look like that open up new collaborative ideas? That offer space for the creative discussion of social issues? That enable new business models for creative work?
We are looking for concepts that create spaces for creative work, make them accessible and activate them – concepts that help to avoid vacancies through community engagement and conserve urban resources through use and interim use. Available spaces – whether ground floor premises or larger building complexes, whether used temporarily or activated for long-term establishment – should generate added value for the creative scene through new ideas.
Space as a resource has many facets. We are looking for concepts that take one or more thematic focal points into account:
Exchange and networking
From encounter to rapprochement to cooperation: Which spatial frameworks support communities to exchange? What new uses are conceivable that are complementary to co-working concepts?
Work and Production
Creative Work as a Process: Which spaces enable production? How do work spaces need to be rethought to support creative work processes?
Analogue and digital
Diversity of spaces: How can digital innovations be conceived for and used in analogue work? How can the interfaces of analogue and digital spaces be designed?
Creativity and everyday life
Spaces for living and working: How can spaces contribute to balancing creative work, care work, leisure and commitment?
Environment and society
Added value through dialogue: How can the work of creative professionals also have an impact on their immediate environment? What promotes social interaction in the city?
