Human Cities was founded in 2006 as a platform of interdisciplinary exchange, questioning about livability of public spaces by using participatory design as a tool to supply systems of process and innovation.

Starting from 2008 the platform was funded three times by the “Culture” program of the European Union consolidating the approach and creating opportunities for several cities to implement innovative artistic and design projects, creating network building capacity and diffusing cultural values.

With “SMOTIES-Creative works with small and remote places” project, the platform will decline its approach on 10 small and remote European places intended as depopulated, relationally remote and depositories of a material and immaterial culture that risks being undervalued, not consolidated, not handed down, and hence lost. They will benefit by the production of cultural and creative works done with the 10 partners (nodes of creativity) through a shared methodology (design thinking) that will guarantee a process of engaging of local communities for audience development, transnational mobility of creativity professionals, masterclasses and training for an educational purpose and an evaluation of the impact in order to generate a long term legacy on the involved places.
