A Celebration of Urban Activism
Co-PLAN and POLIS University celebrated years of urban activism through an exhibition, hosted at MAD Gallery, POLIS University. “Urban Activism for Proactive City-making” marked the successful completion of a lengthy phase of urban activism and participatory planning processes mainly in the city of Tirana, as part of the US Embassy supported project Performing Democracy: Urban Activism for Civic Democracy. Realised through a multimedia exhibition, it served as a chronicle where key moments and processes from a series of urban activisms that took place over the years in the city of Tirana were documented. The event was greeted by the Deputy Chief of Mission Mr. Henry D. Jardine, who praised the role of urban activism in getting citizens engaged in city-making processes, particularly worth highlighting in times leading to local elections.
