We’re learning new rules of engagement.” Here’s how cultural institutions from Bilbao and Dortmund are embarking on a new project to work with the skating community in their cities.

A conversation with colleagues from Azkuna Zentroa and Dortmunder U about Art of Skate — a collaborative project with the local skating community to re-think the urban environment. Both partners are using the Digital Identities framework to explore new participatory formats and storytelling techniques for social media.

“We want to reach out to our local community of skaters to understand how we can become accessible to them.”

“Working with the skater community is a great opportunity to re-think how our urban environments can function.”

“We don’t want the Art of Skate to be a blip in our cultural programming. We hope this project is start of a long-term relationship which has many outcomes.”
