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.
