Museu da Crise at ‘Best Of’ Guimarães: European Capital of Culture 2012

Museu da Crise was again a guest in Guimarães, Portugal, between June 19th and 22nd at ‘A Festa dos Dias Cheios’, as part of ‘Best Of Guimarães: European Capital of Culture 2012’. The Museu was located in one of the empty shops that had been turned into ateliers right across the square from the Plataforma das Artes e da Criatividade. Next to a screening of the film and an ongoing open atelier / exhibition, Museu da Crise hosted two ‘Hack the City’ workshops in which the participants were asked to design easy, low cost and sustainable ways to embed alternative economies into the urban infrastructure, the hardware of the city, in order to make it within reach and open for all. The first workshop was with the creative industries also located at the square and the second with members of the local Ecology Association. A number of the designs were executed in Lisbon later that year during the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennial which Museu da Crise participated in.
