Happy City Lab is an organisation founded by Dan Acher, an artivist from Geneva focused on creating happy cities. How do we generate interaction between strangers? How do we change our perception of our city and neighbourhood, create new meanings and experiences? Dan uses the city as a canvas to create situations and events that generate powerful and participative experiences, engaging people and transforming cities.
From Happy City Lab’s with Neighbourhood Exchange Boxes (www.hclbox.org), they have created projects that transform the way people see their neighbours, the strangers that surround them.
