Art extends the field of what’s possible: Meanwhile spaces and urban innovation in Chroniques Digital BIennale in Marseille.

What’s changing in the interface between arts and urban regeneration? Can culture extend the field of what’s possible in cities? A few weeks ago, we had an open conversation with our colleagues from Florence, Amsterdam, Marseille and London in the context of Chroniques, the Biennale of Digital Imaginaries, celebrated in La Friche Belle de Mai.

The session’s title was Arts, cities and life, extending the field of what’s possible. We had an open conversation with T-Factor cities and experts giving us a nice panoramique of what’s happening in the interference zone between arts and city-making in Florence, Marseille, Amsterdam and London. Our line-up was:

Caterina Taurelli – Curator at  Manifattura Tabacchi, Florence; 

Colette Tron – La Friche la Belle de Mai – Director of Alphabetville, Marseille; 

Lucas Evers, Head of Programme, Waag, Amsterdam.

Mick Finch, Professor of Visual Art Practice, University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins;
