Last summer, the social centre in Vilnius Luna6 were working towards spreading awareness and building local neighbourhood community via participatory planning and discussions.
People living in the neighbourhood communally planted a vegetable garden in the outside space of the centre, together constructed an outdoor patio for social activities. This social platform provided a safe space for gatherings in times of a pandemic.
Alongside establishing the outdoor spaces, Luna6 ran a series of “district kitchen” events, where members of the neighbouring community took turns cooking and discussing urban and community politics.
These initiatives not only strengthened the local activist community, but also attracted new members to join the social centre. The four events and building process gathered around 150 people.
