Subtopia has been selected as one of six hubs in Europe working with culture as a tool for democracy. It is the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) who initiated the project with the aim to highlight culture as an important for democracy and also engender exchange between the six European hubs. Focus in the project lies in the common, public space, culture and economy.
As a part of the project ECF, together with the hubs, arranges IdeaCamps, a conference and work method where 50 participants from all over Europe work together with their individual ideas. Next Idea Camp is entitled ”Moving Communities” and will be held 1 till 3 of March 2017 in Madrid.
