Letting Culture in!
Heritage sites as cultural enabling spaces
Transnational Experiences, Cooperative Approaches & Multiple Perspectives on the challenges of today’s cultural heritage revitalization

Cultural projects at vacant urban spaces have the potential to be key factors of heritage preservation and an essential part of spatial urban transformation processes towards the development of new life and diversity. However, cultural operators, administrations and initiatives have to consider precarious effects like gentrification, festivalization and creative place making without social conscience. Being beware of these challenges is the first step towards future-oriented cultural heritage revitalization. But how to find the equilibrium of economic, environmental, social, historical and cultural dimensions of revalorization projects with the sustainable city in mind?
