Does your city has some dismissed warehouses? A former industrial area that has been abandoned and squatted?
Refill aimed at creating prototypes of temporary uses in dismissed and abandoned urban areas.
It was an initiative cofinanced by the Urbact programme of the European Union.
While working as Head of International relations at SAMOA Nantes, my role was to support the development of the partnership, the conception of the project as well as the coordination of the local activities.
The western part of the Isle of Nantes was used as a field for pilot actions during the project.
The drafting of the application as well as the operational and financial management were part of my duties.
The Refill project also included the steering of a focus group of local stakeholders who followed up the testing phase and provided it with guidance and feedback. https://refillthecity.wordpress.com/
