SHARED CITIES: Creative Momentum (SCCM) is on a mission to improve the quality of life in European cities. By exploring aspects of sharing and urban design we are creating new ways of living in our cities. Together.

Shared Cities: Creative Momentum is a seminal four-year cultural project that brings together eleven partners from seven major European cities: Belgrade, Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Katowice, Prague and Warsaw. SCCM establishes an international network for a creative discourse at the intersection of architecture, art, urbanism and the sharing economy to contribute to the transformation of urban spaces. From 2016 to 2020 more than 150 activities will take place, encompassing festivals, films, exhibitions, artists’ residencies or case studies. The project’s ambition is to show urban citizens that their participation and cooperation is essential for creating a pleasant and valuable urban environment. The project’s creative centre is Prague where the Goethe-Institut, Czech Centres and the reSITE organisation form its core team.

Shared cities: Creative Momentum

Beginning with March 2018, we straightened out our winter visions; lined up Rákóczi Cartel, signed lease contracts, whitewashed, cleaned up and moved in the vacant stores around Rákóczi Market.


After the autumn defibrillation of Rákóczi Square we were already pondering about the future of the Market Hall’s neighborhood and on how to open up possibilities for the revived community. As usually we exploited the cold winter days to get and think together, share visions of the Rákóczy-Horánszky Axis and enlarge our networks during some Monday night Józsefváros discussions.


Short summary about our one and a half years activities in Shared Cities: Creative Momentum project.

From visioning to planning. 
What is the meaning of "Shared" for us?


We were interested in the future of cities, the trend of individual and community involvement and in what the main challenges are that in general the population, and in smaller scale the inhabitants of Budapest has to face with. 10 weeks 21 guests.
