Cocreation is EU Marie Curie RISE project led by Oxford Brooks University, in partnership with six other organisations across the EU and in Latin America. CoCreation is a four year program running from 2017-2020. The project 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.

 The partner organisations include three organisations in the EU: European Alternatives (Paris), City Mine(d) (Brussels), Tesserae (Berlin); and three universities: University of Bath (Bath), University of PUC-Rio (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, Mexico City).
