Budapest Squares

Budapest Squares

What do squares as public areas mean to people?

To what extent do they create a feeling of belonging to a community? And how can they change the course of history?

The intended purpose of the "Budapest Squares" Project is to make young Europeans reflect, using audiovisual tools, on how these public areas function within our different societies and cultures. It will also try to demonstrate how, now more than ever, the square can be used innovatively as a tool for participative democracy.

Moscow Square is the most important meeting point on the Buda side. The political regime has changed, but the name is still a kind of symbol of the past decades of the Hungarian history and the present Hungarian society.
A big piece of green close to the city centre! When the Sun is shining, young people are going to Margitsziget, taking sunbath, playing football or frees-bee, couples are kissing – the Margitsziget is a kind of paradise among the gray building and the traffic-jam of a metropolis. Which objects would taken away by people?
Heroes Square had been built at the and of the 19th century to demonstrate the richness of the Hungarian history. Nowadays we can see youngsters with skateboards, students from the countryside and tourists on the square.
