Martín, Á. A-Place Project: Placemaking in L’Hospitalet. Triple Helix XXI Conference, Barcelona, 26-29 June 2023

The A-Place project aimed to bring together students, teachers, artists, administration and community members to explore the concept of place and collective identity in the city of L'Hospitalet. Educational and creative activities were utilized to facilitate this collaboration over the course of the last three years. The final purpose of this collaboration is to create or reinforce the links between the inhabitants and certain places underused or ignored in their neighbors. As result of these processes, it is expected that the livability of those places improves, in terms of security, social activity, cohesion and resiliency.
