€500 for Best Re-Use of an Urban Object or Area

To encourage and celebrate resourcefulness in the city, EXCHANGE RADICAL MOMENTS! Live Art Festival is awarding a prize for the most innovative re-use of an urban object or area for a new purpose.

From telephone boxes being re-used as tree planters to street signs being used as musical instruments , the urban landscape is no longer the end of a creative process, but the beginning. The city has become source material and urban residents around the world are finding new uses for the existing infrastructure of their city.

Do you have an idea for how an object or area in the city could be put to better use than the one it was originally designed for? Have you seen or created an alternate use for something in the city? Please submit your photos, images and ideas below for a chance to win €500 as well as having your work published and exhibited.

The GO11 Award is a €500 prize for the best examples of re-using existing objects and areas of the city for a new purpose. The winning entry will receive €500, and will be presented in the festival magazine, published October 2011.
