CATALYSE – Research & Action Week in Essen

The research and action week (RAW) of the EU-funded project CATALYSE, that the three partners Forum d’Avignon (Paris), BM 30 (Bilbao), and ecce (Dortmund), perform in 2013 and 2014, is a three day interactive and transnational collaboration of 30 participants with the focus on "cross-sectoral innovations in urban development through culture and creative industries".  RAW is carried out by each partner through an Hackaton for the Forum d’Avignon (October – November 2013) and in Bilbao, on 4-5 March 2014.
“RAW ESSEN” led by ecce follows the Forum d´Avignon Ruhr, June 27-28 2013, and will be held october 24 to 26 2013 in Essen City-North, which is in itself a Creative Quarter in the Ruhr Region. Thus the basis for RAW ESSEN is already a spatial setting for urban change by investments of the culture department of Essen since 2011.

The topics at RAW ESSEN focus the question “How do investments in culture and creative industries spillover in the urban space?”
For this question, a study was commissioned in accordance with the CATALYSE program, which was presented at the Forum d'Avignon Ruhr in June 2013. At the same time a concrete spillover idea has been developed at the Forum d' Avignon Ruhr that serves as a show-case of the results found in the research: This idea titled "Shaking Hans" is a practical case corresponding to the theoretical results of the study. At RAW these results in theory and practice are discussed and further developed – reaching from benchmarking best-practices throughout Europe (theory) to a concrete project plan for “Shaking Hans” (practice).
Based on this dual interlinking approach of research and practice CATALYSE aims to raise awareness amongst cultural actors and citizens in Europe - by the transnational cooperation in Spain, France and Germany – how concretely culture is an investment for the activation of regions and cities. CATALYSE wants to function as an enabler, as a catalytic process for concrete actions based on research evidence and knowledge.
