Cultural Sparks for New Municipalisms is a video produced in the frame of a research about culture and municipalism. The research has been produced by Commonspolis, Shelagh Wright, Peter Jenkinson, Igor Stokfiszewski and ZEMOS98, and it supports the idea that the development of new cultures of participation has influenced in the way municipalist platforms have been managed.
Cultural Sparks for New Municipalisms has been produced by ZEMOS98 together with the partners of the research. The production (concept, design, animation) was done by Pablo Oliveira and Miguel Serrano, the voice over is done by Ella Britton.
Cultural Sparks goes through different definitions of culture and advocates for a political understanding on the topic: How is culture developing new narratives and ways of doing for local politics? What do cultural perceptions of reality, cultural practices and cultural studies bring to municipalism as a new institutional political activity? How can municipalism positively influence the rise and flourishing of a new culture?
