Open call: Tactical Urbanism 2022 | Landscape design festival Magenta

Landscape design festival MAGENTA and its’ partner “Kaunas – European Capital of Culture 2022” are happy to announce the Open Call - Tactical Urbanism for participation in the 2022 edition of the festival and are inviting creators from various fields to propose their ideas for projects to be implemented in Kaunas City in 2022.

Landscape design festival MAGENTA aims at actualizing landscape design and environmental art, enhancing the role of green spaces in shaping our urban environment, and promoting interdisciplinary public art. The 2022 edition of the festival is dedicated to tactical urbanism.

Tactical urbanism means short-term green interventions into urban life and environment that invite us to consider long-term effects and a need for complex and socially significant actions. Tactical urbanism interventions can creatively and playfully enliven urban spaces, while actively involving citizens in various activities related to environment, plants and urban elements. It’s one of the most effective ways to accommodate new and revitalize old public spaces, to regenerate them or to reveal their potential.

This is even more relevant in current COVID-19 situation as the viral pandemic and mobility restrictions made global urban population strive for more fresh air and open, spacious and healthy public zones in densely urbanized areas.
