Urban Institute, Riga an organization created by urban and cultural researchers, has served as a platform for discussions and innovative activities for seven years. Closely collaborating with artists and other cultural organizations, we have been looking for ways to improve the lives of urban population by challenging the understanding of the built environment and the activities.
