The point of departure for the first module of the project is the potential of public space as one of the most important preconditions for the creativity of the community. Through research into selected public spaces and analysis of their potentials by a working group of experts from different social and human sciences (philosophy, theology, architecture, anthropology, media theory and art) the project deals with issues as to how the position, function or symbolic meaning of these spaces could be used, changed or developed for a better functioning of the immediate or broader community. Starting off from very specific and functionally different but nevertheless ordinary public spaces (the square, park, church, mall, public library, daily paper and internet site) the working group observed what was going on in them, in which way they are used, how they function, how they coexist and affect the user.
