Community-Driven Platforms and an all-new Cultural Experience

Summit: per18


Length: 24:00


URBAN NATION Museum Berlin is 10 years in the making, providing a masterclass for REMIX Academy Perth delegates on designing a thoroughly modern museum from the ground up and building a community to achieve it.

URBAN NATION is much more than just a building. Urban Space all over the world is declared an inspiring, integrative zone of action where artists, creatives and the public come together. At its heart are artists who think differently, create new things and exhibit, form networks and enjoy a creative dialogue. It approaches people, embraces neighbours, activates communitites and brings together cultures in urban districts. URBAN NATION takes responsibility for the city and gives something back to it: urban art and enthusiasm for our neighbourhoods.

Yasha guides us through her 10-year path to launching this new museum for street art in Berlin: harnessing community and digital technologies, inspiring a wide range of stakeholders around the vision, activating the physical spaces and developing cultural tourism.
