Dear colleagues and friends,
We are excited to announce the launch of our next Open Call for the “Safe Harbor” residency in Belgrade!
September 2019 – March 2020
Start: September 15, 2019
Deadline: September 1, 2019
The Residency program “Safe Harbor” is dedicated to activists, practitioners, scholars and multidisciplinary authors who focus their work on the phenomenon of the city, ranging from the social and spatial complexity of the contemporary city to opportunities towards citizen-driven development and the right to the city.
Institute for Urban Politics invites through this program urban practitioners to visit Belgrade and work here for a few weeks. Travel and accommodation expenses and moderate per-diems are covered. The program provides a space for reflection and development of one’s own research, along with exchange and contribution to the local struggles, and opens the channels of communication and collaboration with the local researchers and activists’ scene.
Institute for Urban Politics is an activist collective formed in 2010 under the name Ministry of Space. We have initiated and participated in numerous urban struggles concerning the common use of unused public or private spaces, collective actions against the harmful development projects and have done a great number of research studies and policy proposals for democratization of urban governance and development. Ministry of Space has grown and transformed into an Institute for Urban Politics, with intention to further intensify production and dissemination of knowledge and creation of policies in areas of participative urban planning, democratization of use of public spaces, urban commons and housing.
