The Blat-project examines the ways subcultural and creative communities are organised, function and interact, and on the basis of this, the ways alternative culture is produced, disseminated and con- sumed in an urban environment. We especially focus on the sharing of material and non-material resources which is enhanced by informal so- cial networks. What we are trying to achieve is to create a more ‘formalised’ network for these small-scale, self-organising communities, where collaboration, cooperation and the sharing of resources can take place – according to our plans this will take the form of a workshop/ festival and an online platform in the near future.
