City Link and GivRum invite everyone to be part of an exciting day where we will celebrate the city together. The focus of the day is transformation of city space through artistic and creative strategies and methods, and the concepts of citizen involvement and co-creation will be studied with a kind and critical treatment.
City Link 2015: Reimagining the City will contain talks and debates, workshops, exhibitions, dinner and pop-up concerts. Throughout the day we will explore new ways of thinking about creativity and social communities, and through best practice examples we will gain new insights and perspectives on how we can work towards better solutions in our cities. Bring your neighbour, colleague, child or friend to a day where we will explore urban space together in Frederiksberg and Nordvest through creative methods.

RumOs, Glentevej 70A, KBH NV
Six Danish and six Scottish artists and curators have been part of an artist exchange programme, where they have studied each other’s cities and spaces. This process has led to the creation of new artistic works. Themes such as co-creation, democratic education, gentrification, and strategies towards the creation of creative city spaces are demonstrated in the exhibition. Thus the exhibition reflects upon local history and diversity between the cities.
