SAWP- “Culture Walks”

SAWP- “Culture Walks”

SAWP - “Culture Walks” “Culture walks” is the first step in a strategy called SAWP (Spaces for arts, welfare and progress). Based on in-situ participative workshop model, SAWP works on exploring new venues in the Alexandrian neighborhood, Karmouz, to promote them as spaces for arts and culture. The aim is to support creative economies of culture, which can assist sustainable development and raise citizens’ awareness on how to use local resources for start-up social enterprises and for social image enhancement. During the Tandem collaboration project, the objective is to map cultural potentials - popular stories and physical spaces - in order to draw a neighborhood “open-up” strategy, and promote a new image of Karmouz by proposing “Culture walks” itineraries that will be assembled in a booklet.
