Background information:

Zaragoza City of Knowledge (Zaragoza ciudad del conocimiento) has got assistance from Ars Electronica EXPORT in Zaragoza March 2012 as the Spanish foundation launches its PASEO PROJECT, an effort to jointly seek creative new ideas for communication in and with a city. At a symposium that presented Ars Electronica and its impact on Linz as a best-practice example, participants had the opportunity to consider other interesting models developed by artists and creative engineers as interventions in a real or virtual cityscape.

The event also served as the setting for the debut of an idea platform designed to collect new creative models of city representation. Artists and creative technologists are now invited to submit existing projects as well as new project ideas, that are dealing with the topic “NEW CREATIVE MODELS TO EXPERIENCE THE CITY“. Having the city of Zaragoza as a place of intervention will be a plus.
