„Eye-cat­cher“ is a youth par­ti­ci­pa­tion pro­ject of the youth asso­cia­tion Youth Archi­tec­ture City (JAS e. V.) which is fun­ded by the Federal Pro­gramme „Cul­ture is Strength. Edu­ca­tion Alli­an­ces” from 2013 to 2017. The Federal Pro­gramme pro­mo­tes the deve­lo­p­ment of local net­works with the aim of imple­men­ting extra­cur­ri­cu­lar, cul­tu­ral acti­vi­ties for older child­ren and ado­lescents. In this broa­der con­text the pro­ject „Eye­cat­cher“ acti­va­tes young people for the use, appro­pria­tion and design of public spaces in the city. Every year throughout the pro­ject dura­tion young people will explore public spaces in their neigh­bour­hood and change them tem­pora­rily or per­ma­nently with „eye­cat­chers“ in Ham­burg, the Ruhr region and Berlin.
The Chair of Urban Design & Urban Deve­lo­p­ment will tog­e­ther with Youth Archi­tec­ture City (JAS e. V.) con­duct an accom­pany­ing rese­arch for the pro­ject „Eye­cat­cher“.
