The cities we live in are not neutral. They are a reflection of values and narratives that communicate to citizens through elements in public space, such as monuments, names of streets and squares, and architecture. However, many citizens are not aware of this phenomenon and do not approach it critically.
Through the project "My City Through Time", we will create knowledge, methods, and recommendations with which we want to develop the awareness of citizens, especially young people, and encourage them to take a critical approach to the elements of public space in 7 European cities: Zagreb, Berlin, Barcelona, Thessaloniki, Vienna, Gorizia, and Maribor.
Join us at the workshop and presentation of the first result of the project on Friday, May 19, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the premises of the Ribnjak Youth Center to get to know Zagreb's public space better. At the beginning, we will present the thematic units on which we have emphasized - depiction of women from tradition to modernity, locations related to the activities of the Croatian Anti-War Campaign, places connected with student movements during the 20th century, as well as locations connected to the contribution of the Serbian minority to Zagreb. After the presentation, the participants will try the presented tours themselves, visit the selected locations and reflect on them. After our return, we will evaluate the tried-and-tested methods together, with the aim of improving them.
