Townsquare13 is an academic workplace. The term academic workplace is an operationalization of the term academization: research-based knowledge is translated into practical, usable products, services, interventions, program and/or instruments through the structural collaboration between at least one professional organization (profit, non-profit or social enterprise) and a university department.
Townsquare13 is an academic workplace, a collective of creative entrepreneurs, local artistic talent, activist citizens and (pr)academics. It is;
*a place where people can meet to exchange products and ideas.
*a field for experimentation, without a direct commitment to results.
*a space where creative talent can grow at its own pace and innovative ideas can mature until they are ready to take off on their own.
*a space in which an inquisitive attitude and a critical view of ourselves and our society is central to the development process.
Number 13 stands for transformation and the demolition of old structures, followed by a reconstruction phase inspired by our own imaginary capacity. It is associated with powerful change and innovation at a community level. Interested to work with Townsquare13? Contact us: email@example.com.
