THE FIVE THEMES

LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS

ZAWP is a compelling story about the impact of planning in the public and private management of the urban wilderness of Bilbao. It is a train driver’s dream that has brought together a core of nine people interested in change and local impact, by regenerating former industrial spaces and thus creating opportunities for cultural life. Different synergies in Zorrotzaurre and La Ribera de Deusto have framed the current local partnerships and the public management of industrial heritage.

As the urban plan advanced, ZAWP mutated locally, turning ZAWP into an atemporal form; from situated action to a modus operandi. This both changed and enabled a team of people and formulas to take action, whilst forging an urban transformation process. Art, music and business came together to revitalise an area that had long been forgotten yet which seems to be a treasure island for the future of Bilbao; the place to be active and creative within the city’s landscape.

Economical sustainability and livelihoods are the challenge. Challenging local partnerships, collaborations beyond international boundaries, learning from activities which both succeed and fail. Private, public and isolated entrepreneur management are taken into account in order to regenerate the neighbourhood. Share your practice with us!
