PERIFERICAS (peripherals) research is born from the analysis of those cultural processes, whether global, extraordinary, periodic or daily, that take place in public spaces and that are closely linked to the existing socioeconomic fabric in the contexts where they take place.

Culture has become a key element in sustainable urban development policies, whether associated with heritage resources or the poles of artistic production and creation.

The urban transformations associated with these cultural actions have become the focus of analysis, and the various scales of creation, its relationships and forms of interaction with the city offer new keys for the development of urban management today. Cultural action offers the possibility of working with complex and changing identities that, through flows of relationships, generalized attitudes, patterns of repetition or spontaneity, locate their habitat in the city, giving rise to more dynamic forms of use and collective appropriation of public spaces, promoting the social construction of the identity of the street, neighborhood, district and city.

With economic, political and social implications, PERIFERICAS takes Seville as a case study and how its cultural processes affect the construction of its identity, development and evolution. This project will try to collectively record the cultural events that take place in the city, with special emphasis on those that involve the transformation, transitory or permanent, of its public spaces.
