Jane Jacobs was a campaigner for good city life. Even in 1961, she was able to write a book which still stands as the key text on building liveable neighbourhoods. She campaigned bravely, successfully against some very powerful people, in NYC. And we will celebrate her work this weekend, all over Vienna and the world.
Come and explore Vienna’s catwalk, a spontaneous urban development along both sides of the central Danube Canal. Since 2003, this lively public space – with no security guards, barriers, or pressure to consume, has evolved into a fun, friendly alternative to the tourist cliches of the Inner City. With good music, interesting street art, and a pop-up scene that changes each summer, this is as cool as Vienna gets. And attracts an unusual mix of migrants, creatives, local residents and visitors. Eugene, from political culture group space and place, will introduce you to his own viertel.
Led by Eugene Quinn
