Guerrilla-Citizen 2021
Our living streets.

Reappropriation of urban public space makes our cities humane, social and sustainable. It encourages exchange and care, between one another and with the city.
Guerrilla-Citizen is a local neighborhood movement which wishes to trigger, empower and encourage residents to take part in the use and in the designing of the surrounding public spaces.
The project is directly inspired by Guerrilla Gardeners who take positive action to make unused ressources in their neighbourhood flourish as well as show a sign of protest for the access to shared space and the freedom to use it.
Guerilla-Citizen is a mentality: A direct engaged approach to our personal urban environnement. Allow ourselves more possibilites in public space, along with more responsabilites to care for it. In times of the Covid pandemic, welcoming public space is crucial.

Gerrilla-Citizen was selected to participate at an upcoming  exhibition project on the new understanding of public spheres and urban spaces, organised by the Kornhausforum Bern. 

These small Guerrilla-Citizen projects aim to make our cities feel more like our home.
