SEiSMiC International Launching Event
The SEiSMiC project will hold its international launch event in Brussels, presenting work during 2014 in building up multi-disciplinary national networks in 10 countries. The event runs:
24 November, 10:30-15:30
25 November, 9:00-15:00
Representatives from all 10 newly formed networks will meet to present their work and plans for the coming two years of activities. They will compare and contrast urban challenges in their respective countries and share ideas on how these can be addressed through social innovation.
The event aims at:
- taking stock and reflecting on the needs for urban social innovation expressed so far in the SEiSMiC countries, and
- starting a strategic dialogue between European policy makers, social innovators and other interested stakeholders.
The SEiSMiC launching event will bring together delegates from the 10 National Networks, representatives of the European Commission, JPI Urban Europe representatives, the project’s Advisory Board as well as the SEiSMiC consortium.
A 3-day performance and exhibition on the theme of city dreams leads up to the launch. The exhibition features hundreds of hand-drawn sketches made in SEiSMiC's 10 countries over the last year. The sketches depict what average urban residents hate and love about their cities. Artists led by the New Heroes Company of Amsterdam have created the artworks, and they'll produce more at their installation in Brussels.
