Innovative Model of Cultural – Social Community Hub

This technology tackles urban revitalization, improving citizens’ involvement, communication, and interaction between local community, urban and environmental professionals, artists and activists, local authorities, and media, and is conducted by Mikser Association.


The mechanism for creating an enhanced level of understanding and mutual support of social groups (especially the vulnerable and socially underprivileged ones) is highly relevant for conflict resolution within urban developments. The method, designed to improve citizens’ cognitive performance and social health, will be based on the creation not only of specific urban spaces but also expanding it to the other parts of the city needed for social interactions and use of web-based dynamic interactive continuing dialogue tested in the demo-cities. Further enhanced through Mikser Socio-Cultural HUB.
