Space of Urgency: A Narrative of Cultural Spaces By and For Self-Organised Communities
In times of climate crisis, pandemic, neo-liberal markets and authoritarian governments, we are facing an unpredictable future. Spaces of urgency are local pockets of resistance, offering alternatives against dominant systems of capitalism and patriarchy.
Cultural spaces by and for self-organised communities are at the heart of unique identities and innovations. They are communal tools to be used against inequality while promoting strongholds for democracy. Unfortunately they are disappearing rapidly.
The Space of Urgency platform shares their narratives, to raise public awareness and international solidarity. The aim is to support these “spaces of urgency“ and their communities in gaining local recognition and protection. These stories of the spaces are designed to inspire international change-makers to engage in creating their own identities and alternatives for the dominant systems.
