Pilot 1

Officially launched in February 2021, the IMAGE Project involves more than 150 students from the five participant cities – Amsterdam, Barcelona, Lisbon, Paris and Vienna – and has made its progress into a Mid-Term Conference, which took place in April.

Challenging the students to work together and bridging their research about the peripheries in each of their home cities, has brought to light different anchor points that actually connect each territory, representing relevant findings and insights on how to (re)map these specific places. This included potential forms of transformation, inspiration and different perspectives, linking from day one the concepts like polyphony, polycentrism or imaginaries. Places, sounds, smells or senses were explored, resulting in enriching and complementary presentations from the intercity groups that were formed within the project.
