River//Cities

Rivers are often regarded as means of transport, or – at best – a space for water sports. But they are also powerful and symbolic icons for connecting people and ideas across regions and national borders. They are the land’s blood system that can both join and sometimes divide people. They are THE PLACE that may connect many important fields in the city: environment, architecture, city planning, transport, but also arts, culture, cultural tourism, and education.

 

The River//Cities Platform is a partnership between cultural, environmental and political initiatives which work in their cities to interact with and develop their rivers or waterfronts as cultural spaces.

 

The River//Cities Platform Foundation is a successor of the informal network River//Cities Platform established in 2006 by initiative of Agnieszka Wlazel, Impact Foundation. 

 

The River//Cities Platform Foundation is to increase the impact of culture on the sustainable development of urban waterfronts for the benefit of their citizens. The main objectives are:

To increase cultural activity in urban waterfront areas.

To encourage policy change and increase investment in cultural initiatives.

To generate cross-diciplinary collaborations.

To create capacity-building opportunities.

New strategy of River//Cities Platform was established in 2017.
