Shared SpacesShared Spaces
is an interview section which aims to reflect the multifaceted and changing nature of public space. It does this by means of simple but very open questions addressed to informed individuals from widely differing origins and disciplines that are part of the many activities organized by the Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB)
. With a format that is short and flexible but not lacking rigour, it is therefore an educational tool for all kinds of audiences and one that aims to create awareness of the fact that understanding and transforming the city we share is everyone’s concern.
