[VIC] Vivero de Iniciativas Ciudadanas is an open-source platform, a collaborative project orientated to promote, spread, analyze and support initiatives and critic processes in a proactive way throughout all the civic society layers, with special incidence in the transferences to the territory, the city and the public space.
We observe and mapped citizen initiatives which represents “an alternative way to make things”, incorporating new concepts, agents and initiatives or the social innovation and studying their applicability to projects and proposals (case studies) in the scope of the architecture and the urbanism.
We propose projects and strategies or “ways to do” aimed to serve as bridge between diverse agents who formed the current social network which is being developing.
We share the collective knowledge (commons) in diverse workshops, open encounters and forums generating up-to-date bonds in the social layers: listening , studying and proposing routes on specific situations, which allow to merge theory and practice.
[VIC] was implanted as an office in the District of Legazpi (Madrid) in 2008, transforming itself into digital and participating platform since then, generating an ample network of collaborations with diverse participation in projects, workshops, meetings and forums.
