Last Wednesday, the ICEC team finalised the long journey of the 3-year research project with a final conference in Vienna. In the creative space of the TAG Theater an der Gumpendorfer Straße, Julia Dahlvik, Yvonne Franz and Josef Kohlbacher (all ISR) presented their research results and the ICEC poster to project partners, collaborators and interested members of the public (download here).
The results were discussed with Nathalie Binder (initiative Matznergarten), Florian Brand (Urban Renewal Office 7/8/16) and Markus Rumelhart (district mayor in Mariahilf, 1060 Vienna) followed by neighbourhood walks through the district. Markus Steinbichler (Urban Renewal Office 6/14/15) highlighted spaces from the “Miteinander in Mariahilf” neighbourhood project, Julia Dahlvik discussed the role of the public space as space of encounter, Yvonne Franz explained the concept of urban living labs and Josef Kohlbacher showed the relevance of a diverse street for the neighbourhood with changes along Gumpendorfer Straße.
The common sense for interethnic coexistence in superdiverse neighbourhoods in Amsterdam, Vienna and Stockholm can be found in a small detail that may comes unexpectedly: Small, superficial contact with others in the neighbourhood is of crucial relevance to create attachment and potentially co-responsibility in the long term.
