Brooklyn and L'Hospitalet are two industrial cities that have reinvented themselves thanks to  art and creativity, that has allowed them to become drivers of innovation.

 

In 2023, in collaboration with both City Councils and local organizations, we will organise an inclusive innovation lab, BK x LH, to take one step further and explore how art, technology and innovation can continuously help both cities be their best selves for their citizens.

The festival is open to everyone (read more here),

willing to...

transform challenges

into

opportunities

The festival will bring together 20 people from Brooklyn and 20 people from L'Hospitalet.

They will work in 10 groups of 4 peoplebeing 2 people from each city.

Teams will be split even between both challenges.

The program will have an hybrid format, half will take place online,

and the other half offline. All activities will take place after regular work hours

so everyone can participate.

SUSTAINABILITY

What opportunities do we have to make citizens more aware of the importance of engaging in real action to reframe their consumption patterns?

EQUALITY

How can make our similitudes stronger than our differences? How can we create more opportunities to collaborate than to compete?

Implicit in both challenges, as well, is to make both cities more affordable for

emerging artists and to improve the international promotion of their talent;

as well as to further explore how can we foster

local change for global impact
