Call for Contributions – Conference of Co-Creation

Our friends from European Alternatives are looking for contributions to their final conference of Co-Creation:

“Co-Creation has become increasingly popular in recent years as a concept, method and policy tool.  A key factor in the rise of Co-Creation is its potential in breaking down boundaries, between different parts of the city, between different groups within cities, between different parts of the world, between disciplines and between different practices. At the same time Co-Creation has been increasingly questioned in terms of encouraging co-option by the state and cultural imperialism.

To mark the end of a four year EU project on Co-Creation in marginalised urban areas, the School of the Built Environment at Oxford Brookes University is organising a two-day interdisciplinary conference bringing together academics, community representatives, NGOs and urban and cultural practitioners to explore the possibilities and limitations of Co-Creation in challenging such boundaries.

We are looking for contributions which explore the varied and contested aspects of Co-Creation. Suggested themes are included below. However we would also welcome contributions on other topics.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 17th April 2020. A review of abstracts will be completed by the end of April 2020.”

All information can be found on the website of European Alternatives.
