October 2017 - Caring for each other

Festival of opportunities for co-creation

On the 21st of September, housing corporation Woonbedrijf, Stam + De Koning, Inbo, Urhahn, 12N Urban Matters, Conversation Next and Rutger Buch opened the doors of SPACE-S for the ‘Kansenfestival van co-creatie’(Festival of opportunities for co-creation). An interactive afternoon full of inspiration for organizations that want to get started with co-creation too. Below a short impression of that afternoon. 

SPACE-S is the example of successful co-creation and customer management in housing development. Without going beyond the planning and budget limits, a neighbourhood was developed with 402 homes and a close group of residents. This shows it is really possible, even with social housing. 

This process has been notived as SPACE-S has been nominated for the Dirk Roosenburg Award 2017. The aim of the award is to "promote the quality of the built environment in the municipality of Eindhoven through public discussion." On October 27, the winner will be announced during the Dutch Design Week. Check out the ten nominations here
