How can markets activate local economies and strengthen social cohesion? Join us for the webinar “Neighbourhood Markets As Social Community Drivers” at the STADMAKERSCONGRES 2020 on 25 November.

Public markets come in all shapes and sizes; indoor or outdoor, specific to a particular product or type of food or mixed, located in the same place or travelling. But successful public markets all have one thing in common: they are driven by local communities.

In this webinar, Guillem Colomer (COFO architects) – winner of Europan 15 Rotterdam “Visserijplein” – presents three case studies of community driven market typologies that are relevant to the context of the Visserijplein in Bospolder Tussendijken (BoTu) in Rotterdam. Together with a panel of experts and Rotterdam city makers he will explore creative measures to bring public markets to the next level, as civic conveners to connect social life to commerce, and create a new sense of community. And by doing so, draw lessons for the local economy of BoTu and the future development of the Visserijplein.
