Seemingly common activities such as gardening, recycling, playing, and walking are pushed beyond their usual definition by the international architects, artists, and collectives featured in the exhibition. Their experimental interactions with the urban environment show the potential of a new level of participation by city residents.

This exhibit features 99 actions that instigate positive change in contemporary cities around the world.

An exciting web site, cca-actions.org , has been established to feature all of these actions. Its aim is to reach people across the globe and get them excited about the ideas behind the show, such as urban intervention, non-conformity and “do-it-yourself”.

In doing so, They are challenging architects, artists, urban interventionists and others to take actions big or small and post them onto the Actions online gallery. The hit list will be featured in the live exhibition, while the rest will remain showcased online.
