The main expert workshop / City Lab on co-creation methodology was about bringing people together in the neighbourhoods of Ostend. It presented the story on implementation of participatory social and artistic interventions within the city.
Staff members of various local institutions and artist took part in the presentations, the site visit and the meetings.
The arranged site visit took everyone by boat to the East Bank of the Ostend, a maritime area which is under a great threat of gentrification.
