Yes We Camp offers an inventive use of available spaces
In our opinion, the current mechanisms for making and managing cities stifle the possibilities of spontaneous appropriation and invention on the part of all those who live or practice these spaces on a daily basis. City users interface with service providers, public and private; they are considered as consumers or beneficiaries, rarely as co-producers.
We are working to help bring about a change in attitude, to allow everyone to become a “local co-producer” of daily services. It is not a question of assigning us to new and obligatory missions, in the manner of civil or military service; it is about making better use of our cohabitation, accepting to rely on the presence of others to create natural reciprocities between all.
Our proposal is a protocol for the inventive use of available spaces.
In contexts of wasteland, vacancy or transitory town planning, Yes We Camp can initiate a partnership protocol which allows these available spaces to become, during a given time, a zone of possible attempt and facilitated invention, to meet several ambitions: local production, welcoming the most vulnerable, relationship with living things, development of learning, artistic creation, collective achievements.
