Congress on Public Spaces is a series of three interdisciplinary events in Kaunas & Vilnius dedicated to exploring changes in democratic participation.


Congress is organised by Vytautas Magnus University, Jutempus Interdisciplinary Art Program, research platform Balticada with participation of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Program in Art, Culture and Technology.
Culture and aesthetics have a fundamental role to play in public discourse, citizen involvement, and exercising the everyday right to the city. But how?


From the public museum, to digital art platforms, to the space of civic action, the congress will interrogate the spatiality of this role of aesthetics, hosting a conference, public discussion, and workshop on the social, institutional, political, technological, and ideological issues that undergird complex relationships between cultural heritage and urban (re)developments.
The congress will examine case studies that stand at the important intersection of new technologies for democratic participation, the construction of future cities through alternative methods of design, and community mobilization from territories around the world.
