Thesis: Culture as an essential sector has a potential creative breakthrough and can realize oppportunities for cooperation.

Bunker evaluated that collaboration between different partners on the local level is low. NGO’s cooperate on international level meanwhile there is a lack of cooperation between partners of local community, ngo’s, business sector, local inhabitants and public institutions.
Bunker wants to evolve better conditions through different projects for better exchanges of sources, knowledge and services between cultural, educational and other partners in our local environment. Workshops, round tables, public presentations, events, artistic interventions in public space are activities for realizing goals.

Role: new forms of organization and management in creative space. We will be aware of the needs, wishes and expectations of our partners, local community organizations, local residents and cultural workers after finishing this project.
Different ways of non-monetary exchanges are presented to local inhabitants who are often over excluded from events and other happenings in their environment. We try to stimulate non-monetary exchanges in different spheres, we are not limited with contents or teritorry.

Expectations: established network of partners, increased community between involved partners, lower distinctions between social groups, improved life quality and space inviting nwe projects and initiatives.

Object of detailed analysis of our working activities is implemented by University in Valencia. Results of laboratories’ work will be used as examples of good practices for Mediterranean and wider European space.
