The Danish Cultural Institute received support for continuation of the Waterfront project. The launch of the project is scheduled for October 2018.
Waterfront Urban Forum will take place in St. Petersburg during 4-7 October. The forum aims at adopting a broad dialogue on “ecology of big cities” focusing on urban development, community & neighbourhood involvement in creation of environmentally friendly public spaces & private living areas. It also addresses issue of preserving the cultural heritage while adjusting it to the needs of modern urban development.
The Forum is designed to develop themes raised in 2017 during the “Waterfront” discussion & exhibition in St. Petersburg, with the participation of all relevant Nordic & Russian stakeholders (governmental sector, private sector, community organizations and regional universities) on the role of re-development of urban industrial areas.
The Forum is organised in cooperation with the Consulates General of Sweden, Finland and Norway in St. Petersburg, the Committee for External Relations & Street Art Research Institute within the frames of the “Nordic Weeks” festival with financial support of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
