Cidade Campus, Guimarães 2012

Marleen Stikker is a keynote speaker at the Cidade Campus in Guimarães, Portugal on "Open Technology". The Cidade Campus takes places on November 2 & 3 and is a project of Guimarães 2012 European Capital of Culture. It aims to re-orientate the development of creative city-making with a focus on smaller cities. Cidade Campus- re-imagine the possibility of the city!

As part of Guimarães 2012, Watershed publishers produced a series of artistic commissions that explore how ‘openness’ in city development can improve the social, cultural, and economic lives of their inhabitants. One source of inspiration, or 'Think pieces' comes from our Bas van Abel, Frank Kresin and Marleen Stikker.

In their piece, they explore the contention that “we have all the ingredients ready for creating Open Cities – data and technology, systems to share content, platforms for dialogue, tools to co-create – but we still have to define an overall strategy.”
