72 Hour Urban Action – Lobeda 2019

The 72 Hour Urban Action festival has opened its call for 2019, inviting individual or group applications by participants worldwide.

In 2019, the site is Jena-Lobeda, Germany. Ten mixed teams with ten different missions will take over ten sites with only three days and nights to design and build projects in response to local needs.

72 Hour Urban Action Loebda will take place in 2-5 May, 2019 and will challenge local residents and international participants to collaboratively create public spaces in the district.

Participants will sleep in the International Public Space Camp in Lobeda, where a main fabrication hub and a public kitchen will provide them with all they require to rapidly create interventions in public space. Each team will receive a budget and the aid of local experts and neighbors to help them complete their mission on site and on time.

Each participating team will have 12 participants, coming from Germany and the rest of the world. All teams are composed by the festival organizers. When you apply you agree to work with new people.

To apply as an individual or as a group follow the link to the application forms on the official website.

Some knowledge of English is required, but a lot of team spirit is essential.

Participation in 72 Hour Urban Action (72HUA) – Lobeda 2019 is free, recommended and open to all.
