Name Civic Factory
Date 2016
Description The Civic Factory is an ecosystem of synergies capable of promoting collaborative and collective construction dynamics among the actors of the city,: citizenship, public administration, university and the private sector. An accelerator for initiatives and collective projects capable of transforming the territory.

It was created by the CivicWise Valencia circle belonging to the international network CivicWise and focused on projects of Collective Intelligence, Civic Innovation and Open Design. The Civic Factory proposes a new format for intermediation and promotion of activities, projects, actions and practices of Civic Economy, regardless of discipline, experience, race or condition.

The first phase to be able to prototype this project has been the Civic Factory Fest: a month-long event in which public, private and collective entities from Valencia and other cities in Spain and the rest of Europe have taken a first step towards its collective construction. The scenario and the opportunity to materialize the project was born from the collaboration between CivicWise and the public consortium of La Marina Real of Valencia in which it was designed the reactivation of the area destined to the hangars of the Alinghi building. From this first prototyping, it was established a community of people willing to go ahead with the project.
