Idea Camp 2014: 23 > 25.10, Marseille

The Idea Camp: 50 ideas , 23 countries and 3 days to rethink the place of people in public space.

In the summer of 2014 ECF received an astonishing 813 proposals in response to our European-wide call for ideas that engage people in re-defining and shaping public space . From among this treasure trove of applications, we have selected representatives of the 50 most innovative, daring and inspiring ideas to join our first Idea Camp in Marseille.

On this page, you can look at the videos, images and articles produced during the Idea Camp by our citizen media partners and the participants:

I am a freelance writer, literary translator, editor and curator based in Amsterdam. I work internationally on a variety of literary and cultural projects. My primary interest is in challenging official narratives and advocating freedom of expression through different creative processes, using various media, online and offline. I have worked with cultural organisations and have participated in residencies: as translator-in- residence at the Free Word Centre in London (2013); as a cultural journalist at WAAW in Senegal (2015); and most recently at Copenhagen University to work on my project City in Translation, looking at stories behind the multilingual expressions throughout cities. I work closely with ECF on curating their online presence, including website, eZine and social media, as well as with MitOSt in Berlin on the Tandem Cultural Exchange programme and as literature curator with Europalia International Arts Festival in Brussels.
