CLOUDS creates a space of collective development & acts as an intervention that re-examines the notions of public space.
Our basic aim is the co-operative development and provision of the infrastructure necessary for mobilizing new ideas, social & cultural activities.
A commitment that will strengthen citizens' capacity for self-organization and their sense of belonging to the city.
By developing a network of actors that is planning and documenting social and cultural actions, the project will bridge the gap between initiatives, communities and citizens, making Commoning Culture accessible to all.
Our vision is to reclaim and re-establish quality in urban space, promote solidarity and open dialogue.
We hope that CLOUDS will be a step further to achieve our goals of creating
permanent centers for persistent practices of political, social and artistic freedom.
CLOUDS is based in Athens, Greece and is being developed by LUDD along with a community of initiatives and organizations active in the fields of the contemporary commons discourse.
The initiative started in September 2019, as a pilot project of the capacity building program START – Create Cultural Change. A program of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, conducted in cooperation with the Goethe Institut Thessaloniki and the German Association of Sociocultural Centers, supported by the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation and the Bodossaki Foundation.
