Workshop - The Hague
The Stadsridders foundation’s goal is to utilize the creative opportunities the city has
to offer by means of multidisciplinary collaboration. We want to create quality and
innovation within the urban environment. The Stadsridders’ members have different
backgrounds, what ties them together is their interest in the spatial, creative and social
dynamics of the city.
Creative Commons Workshop
Within the Creative Commons project Stadsridders organises a workshop on a case
location in The Hague. It is a practical approach to make the potential of currently un-
used buildings (or not used to its full potential). With people interested in the subject
new ideas for The Hague are developed collaboratively.
De Lagere School
The on-site workshop will be at ‘De Lagere School’ in The Hague. This is a former
elementary school that no longer has this function. At the moment the building
is occupied by artists on a temporary basis. The school building is situated in the
Schilderswijk area, a so-called Vogelaarwijk (a deprived neighbourhood). The school
is adjecent to the local community centre (De Wissel).
After introducing yourself to everybody you will work together on the
project in interdisciplinary groups. Throughout the weekend there will
be inspirational intermissions held by experts of variuos (creative) fields
connected to urban design.
At the end of the weekend, the groups present their work in a pres-
entation.Visiting critics at the end presentation will contribute to the
project with their point of view and knowledge.
With the workshop results as a starting point, a debate is planned.
Goal of the workshop
In the creative workshop we want to challenge as many people as possible,
with as many different backgrounds as possible to create interesting future
possibilities for the building.
