Kick-off Workshop New York

As part of the Common Streetscapes project (a collaboration project between Flanders and the Netherlands), an International Workshop is organised about Coney Island: around 20 participants from different European countries will discuss and propose ideas of how to deal with streetscapes and waterscapes in Coney Island. Parallel to this, artists Giannina Urmeneta Ottiker and Koen Meersman will develop an artistic project, related to the main theme, that will be presented to the public in November 2014, during the design and research seminar that is part of the Common Streetscapes project.
