We are now in Marseille for our very first Idea Camp. Follow the live-stream and live-tweet on the Idea Camp event page.


This summer we received an astonishing 813 proposals in response to our call for ideas that engage people in re-defining and shaping public space. We have selected representatives of the 50 most innovative, daring and inspiring ideas to join our first Idea Camp.

The participants come from 23 different countries and represent organisations from a vast array of sectors. Meet the 2014 Idea Camp participants and get to know their ideas.  


Between 23 and 25 October takes place ECF's very first Idea Camp, bringing together cultural changemakers from more than 23 countries across Europe and beyond in a three-day exchange of ideas to help rethink people’s place in public space. 

Watch the event trailer, get to know the speakers, the hubs and the participants on the Idea Camp 2014 webpage, from where you will also be able to watch the live streaming. We hope to see you all online or face to face in Marseille!

The Idea Camp: 50 ideas, 23 countries and 3 days to rethink the place of people in public space.

We have published a booklet gathering the selected ideas, featuring perspectives from the speakers, facilitators, partners and artists about public space. We also published the full programme of the event. You can download both publications (PDF) in our Library.
