Stadslab RAUM in collaboration with Pakhuis de Zwijger, Stipo, European Placemaking Network and Casco will organize the first edition of Onze stad, ons canvas on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 May. The conference takes place annually on the grounds of RAUM in Utrecht and one day earlier at various locations in various Dutch cities.
A Farmyard as Public Space – Two artists, an old farm and a new housing estate. These are the ingredients for an instructive practice we did that we consider commoning. Like commons, but as a verb for those who use it together: cooperation in a public space. The Travelling Farm Museum of Forgotten Skills with a farmyard as public space makes one curious about the principles at work. Our Erik Uitenbogaard shares the instructive experiences from this artistic project that Casco Art Institute, together with artists’ collective The Outsiders, have realized in Leidsche Rijn in recent years.
