The project seeks to create an eclectic but not compromised “new street” where the bold and revolutionary ideas for social changes can take place, and at the same time has protective qualities and functions as the activists’ home and sanctuary. By defining the street as an open stage where voices are heard and thoughts are communicated, “Urban Stage” aims to extend the active street life into the building interior. The project advocates a two-way interaction and the constant shift of position between the “audiences” and the “performers” to reach lasting participation in activism among people.
