COCREATION is EU Marie Curie RISE project led by Oxford Brookes University, in partnership with six other organisations across the EU and in Latin America.

It addresses urban disadvantage and territorial stigmatization by bringing together different actors such as researchers, policy makers, residents and artists, to ‘co-create’ understanding about marginalised neighbourhoods and to address disadvantage.

It aims to propose, test out and advance new methods and ways of addressing exclusionary processes that affect the lives of citizens at the margins of urban society, through an innovative method of co-creation working with stakeholders and artists to create distinctive knowledge and understanding about the city.

Tesserae takes care of the Theoretical and Conceptual Framework of the project (WP1); and  organised  the International conference in Berlin, we will deliver a Case Study on the Südliche Friedrichstadt, Berlin.
