Objectives: Inner city development in cooperation
The Creative Lab for Transformation represents a participatory learning, exchange and production process on the topic of sustainable inner city development that consistently follows on from earlier projects such as Zukunftsstadt Oberhausen, the Supermarket of Ideas, the Summer School and the Masterplan Wirtschaft. In this process, expressed needs and impulses from previous surveys as well as existing concepts are seen as a starting point and further developed with support. In this way, the participants work out solutions together with a variety of actors and in cooperation with the District office l Brückenschlag and the Free University of Oberhausen .
The aim of these solutions is to advance sustainable and participatory inner city development in the sense of the community. At the same time, the creative laboratory strives to unite crafts, creative people and science in the inner city in this way. In order to create long-term workable structures beyond the project phase, Fraunhofer UMSICHT is also planning to establish an association together with the participants.
