City Spaces – Spaces for Citizens

Aim of the project “City Spaces – Spaces for Citizens” is to improve participation of independent cultural scene actors in decision-making processes concerning management of public properties in partner countries. Therefore the main idea of the project “City Spaces – Spaces for Citizens” is to contribute to the overall independent scene capacity building processesby promoting regional cooperation and experiences in the field of public properties management, addressing at the same time specific issues in local contexts of Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro. The total value of the project is EUR 10180. 

Mesna zajednica mesto ili zajednicaThe publication entitled “Local Community – A Place or a Community?” / “Mesna zajednica - mesto ili zajednica?” was published within the framework of the project “City Spaces – Spaces for Citizens”.
 
Local communities represent a specific from of local self-governance, which saw its great development during the period of self-governing socialism and later its great fall following the collapse of a state system and the break-up of the very state that “patented” this model. Despite all the difficulties and ambiguities surrounding this concept, local communities still represents a good basis for upgrading and improving the level of openness, accessibility and citizen participation in decision-making processes, improving, in the end, the local government efficiency. The Collective Ministarstvo prostora  (Ministry of Space), partner in the project “City Spaces – Spaces for Citizens”, published and promoted the publication “Local Community – A Place or a Community?” that you can find more information about in the text below.
