Version Festival 15 : 101 Things You Can Do with Your Neighborhood – April 15 – May 15, 2015

For the past 14 years Version Festival has introduced innovative projects that tackle local social and urban issues. The festival highlights projects and people that engage public interest and promote the cultural use of public space.

In 30 days Version Festival15 will  examine projects and places that serve the common good and connect us to services that everyone can use in our neighborhoods.  These socially engaged projects promote the cultural use of public space, encourage participation in civic life and demonstrate innovative platforms for funding ideas and actions.

Version Festival 15 is part of an ongoing campaign to examine applications promoting opportunities for renewing our public space as well as creating opportunities for social, cultural and economic empowerment. We’ll be sharing  actions and ideas in a month long workshop/ retreat/ incubator so we can engage in a collective hack of the current urban operating system.
