By 24th September 2013 September 5th, 2017 No Comments

This research focuses on the definition and development of a new cultural development model called proeftuin (Dutch word for “experimental garden”), as a model for urban cultural development that relies on multidisciplinary co-creation and community participation. The research begins with a description of the model and the process continues with demonstration of the model through the review of examples in an artistic context, in an urban development context, and concluded with strategic recommendations towards a successful implementation of the model at an urban level.
