WELCOME

Connecting Cities is a European and worldwide expanding network aiming to build up a connected infrastructure of media facades, urban screens and projection sites to circulate artistic and social content.


In opposition to the commercial use of these urban media, we establish them as platforms on which citizens can exchange – within the city as much as between cities.

We will set up and test this infrastructure of Urban Media Facades through a series of Connecting Cities events, workshops, conferences and artists’ programmes like research residencies and mobile urban media labs. These process oriented interventions and public activities constitute the heart of Connecting Cities.
