Culture plays a crucial role as a mediator in the dialogue between social cohesion, identity and urban regeneration. This panel will discuss alternative models for developing cultural and urban prototypes in remote communities in cities. How can art and art events contribute to the future of a participatory society in remote urban areas? What are the rules and responsibilities of architects, policymakers, artists and cultural institutions in this process?

Abraham Cruzvillegas, Artist, Mexico City; Bernard Khoury, Architect and Designer, Beirut; Afroditi Panagiotakou, Director of Culture, Onassis Foundation, Athens
