TRADERS – EU-FP7, ITN Networks MarieCurie

TRADERS - ‘Training art and design researchers in participation for public space’ is a project that focuses on developing and testing a methodological framework on which art and design (A&D) researchers can rely when working on public space projects in participatory ways.

Art and design researchers can contribute in interesting ways to engaging citizens, policy makers, private partners and other participants to participate in public space (issues). The methods of doing so are, however, underexplored. Therefore, the FP7, Marie Curie Multi-ITN project ‘TRADERS’ (short for ‘Training Art and Design Researchers in Participation for Public Space’) researches the ways in which art and design researchers can ‘trade’ or exchange with multiple participants and disciplines in public space projects and – at the same time – trains them in doing so.

HDK participates in TRADERS through the sub-project Play - through doctoral student Annelies Vaneycken.
