  • 7. THE PROJECT RESEARCH TEAM RESEARCH FINDINGS The research “Mobile A2K: Culture and Safety in Africa. Documenting and assessing the impact of cultural events and public art on urban safety” is an applied research with an interdisciplinary and comparative approach, conceived to document and assess the impact of cultural events and public art on urban safety in relationship with the Millennium Development Goal 7d (“By 2020, to have achieved a signi fi cant improvement in the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers”). More speci fi cally the research aimed at: 1. Documenting and mapping cultural events and public art produced between 1991 and 2013 in the cities of Douala, Luanda and Johannesburg and making this documentation accessible through ICT. 2. Assessing the impact of cultural events and public art on urban safety by exploring a series of case studies and compare them. Research question. How cultural events and public art affect urban safety in African cities? Can we assess these changes as positive according to a group of factors? Hypothesis. The arts are a space for experimentation and research, not directly connected to urban safety, but capable of triggering unforeseen ways of producing higher livability, civil cohabitation and social cohesion. According to its objectives, the research has documented and mapped cultural events and public art in Douala, Luanda and Johannesburg between 1991 and 2013, and – through case studies (with maps and qualitative and quantitative interviews) – it has analyzed the impact of those cultural events and public art on urban safety. mobileA2K.org - April 2014 The research team was composed of scholars in the fi elds of arts, communication, design, architecture, anthropology and sociology, and with representatives of institutions working in the three cities at the centre of our analysis. The research was coordinated by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI), conceived and supported by lettera27 Foundation, co-funded by the Swiss Network for International Studies (SNIS) and implemented in partnership with the African Center for Cities at the University of Cape Town, Chimurenga, doual’art, Ecole Cantonale d'Art du Valais (ECAV), École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Fundação Sindika Dokolo, Latitude, NewMinE at University of Lugano, University Iuav of Venice.

Ruigrok, Sylvie Kandé, Federica Martini, Luca Morici, Simon Njami, Edgar Arthur PieterseMarta Pucciarelli, Isabella Rega, Didier Schaub, Andy Spitz, Fabio Vanin, Caroline Wanjiku Kihato. What emerges from the comparative analysis of the research fi ndings: 1. The space of experimentation and research of the arts is much more limited than we expected. The arts are limited by a series internal and external of factors (selection, location of the artwork, technical aspects of the production, frame of the concept, role of the clients, maintenance of the work and assessment of artistic quality). More than any other art production, the outdoor nature and the size of cultural event and public art are in fl uenced by those limitations. 2. By looking at the positive and negative impact of cultural events and public art on urban safety what it emerges is that there is not only an indirect impact, but also direct one (positive and negative), in particular through the production of forced evictions and infrastructural artworks. 3. By observing the different typologies of artworks produced in the cities at the centre of our analysis, the research highlighted four different type of productions which appear to have recurrent characteristics and fall-outs: proximity artworks, artworks in passageways, large-scale sculptures and monuments and urban- scale artworks and cultural events. 4. Land ownership and negotiation plays a determinate role on the impact of cultural events and public art on urban safety. The process engaged in producing cultural events and public art can support community-building, it can reinforce sense of ownership, it can trigger individual and group actions in maintaining and improving a shared space and it can produce restoration and repurpose of sites. At the same time the production of cultural events and public art can lead to forced evictions, vandalism and con fl icts. The process and who is involved in the process is a direct consequence of land ownership and negotiation.

  • 15. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Primary_School - April 2014 WIKIPEDIA PRIMARY SCHOOL Providing on Wikipedia the information necessary to complete the cycle of primary education in the languages used by the different education systems. RESEARCH PROBLEM The research is developed within a Swiss-South African cooperation lead by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) and the University of Cape Town, in partnership with Wikimedia Switzerland and the Africa Centre based in Cape Town, and with the support of SNF and the South African National Research Foundation (NRF). Iolanda Pensa (principal investigator Switzerland), Tobias Schönwetter (principal investigator South Africa), Luca Botturi, Davide Fornari, Giancarlo Gianocca, Isla Haddow-Flood, Erica Litrenta, Giovanni Profeta, Kelsey Wiens. Wikipedia is meant to be an educational tool and it is currently available online, via mobile phones and offline. Experiences have shown that, once accessible, Wikipedia does not provide information that responds directly to curriculum-based questions. The project relies on Wikipedia as an existing and growing resource, it solves the need for an encyclopedia capable of responding to curriculum-based questions, and it fosters Wikipedia content, quality and outreach. THE PROJECT RESEARCH TEAM The research project developed within a Swiss-South African cooperation (2014-2017) focuses on the theoretical frame of Wikipedia Primary School and in developing and evaluating a system to assess Wikipedia articles for primary education and to involve a wide network of scholars and contributors in their production. More specifically the project aims at: 1. Bridging Wikipedia and primary education. This objective implies to move the Wikipedia community towards a focus on primary education, and at the same time to strengthen the capacity of the education ecosystem to contribute to Wikipedia, and in general to open collaborative knowledge. 2. Enriching Wikipedia with new content relevant to primary education. This objective implies an assessment of the articles produced. 3. Fostering the development of translations and new content in different Wikipedia linguistic editions. This objective implies the release of existing educational resources (OER in cc by or cc by-sa), the production of datasets and the involvement of the Wikimedia movement. 4. Verifying and evaluating the use of Wikipedia as a source of information for primary education. This objective implies the involvement of stakeholders and data analysis. Wikipedia Primary School contributes to universal primary education and to the Millennium Development Goals (MDG2: Achieve Universal Primary Education). Even if it is scalable and international, the project is conceived primarily to address African countries and languages.
