"Zukunftslabor Kunst & Stadt" (Future Lab Art &City) is an interdisciplinary project of )) freies netz werk )) CULTURE, Wuppertal Institute and the graphic design studio Jens Robbers, which brings together various art fields and social sectors. As a kind of compass, it wants to make the transformation potential in the city of Wuppertal tangible, which has been manifesting itself for several years through places, actors and events. The basis is a development process already underway in the city. Through participatory events, a fold-out transformation map of Wuppertal as a city of art and culture was created, with short texts and further information on the reverse side.
The map is intended to be easy to understand and to handle, encouraging further exploration, networking, design and change, and to be a barrier-free and lively compass for art, culture and urban development. The "Future Lab" would like to contribute to making Wuppertal visible both internally and externally as a city of art, culture and a pilot city for practical and creative transformation.
