Sarkandaugava Workers' Day


For the first time, Sarkandaugava will host a festival for local residents to highlight the most interesting periods in Sarkandaugava's history and help local residents jointly create the future identity of the neighbourhood. Sarkandaugava Workers' Day will take place in the very heart of the neighbourhood. It will be an open-air festival to change and enhance people's perceptions of the area, which for a long time has been the industrial centre and cradle of Riga. Turning the spotlight on the term “worker”, Sarkandaugava Workers' Day will pay homage to the most active period in the neighbourhood's history when it was workers who created the identity of the neighbourhood.  There will be a number of activities aimed at creating a new identity for Sarkandaugava.

Project description:

Active Neighbourhoods is a series of events that make living in a city more inspiring and foster a sense of belonging and responsibility for the area we live in. Activities proposed and implemented by residents of Riga continue throughout 2014 in various neighbourhoods of the city. These include tours of the area planned and guided by locals, artistic meetings en plein air, photography campaigns, celebrations, festivals, lectures and discussions, which all centre on people and their infinite wish to invent and create something new, receive guests and have a great time with them.
