Artfactories/other parties (Afap) proposes to carry out a three-year research-action, on the ground of the Lyon metropolis, around the issues of memory highlighted by the practices of temporary occupation of space.
The first year of work (2019-2020) will focus on two temporary occupations of spaces emblematic of these practices at the metropolitan level, that of the Lamartine association, at the time of its relocation to thrw sites, Tissot, the vinetterie and that of the CCO through the temporary occupation of the CCO-La Rayonne, which foreshadows its own relocation on the site. Our approach, based on a sociology of intermediation, will aim to measure as closely as possible to practices what is happening in this conversion through use and what is at stake in it from the point of view of the sensitive city, the territory, its inhabitants – what is played as a memory, but also what is played there aso com".
In a second and third phase (2020-2022), the field of research will be expanded and the results of this work will be abounded by the project of a European resource centre that Afap carries at national and European scales, in partnership with Mains d'Oeuvres, SCIC 9-3.0 and the European trans Europ Halles network, so that they can contribute to the European debate on contemporary land-use planning issues that concern these practices and provide stakeholders with resources to support them on facilitate exchanges and movements between experiences. Indeed, it is the European scale that seems to us to be the relevant scale to grasp the metropolitan fact in all its complexity, and to try to contribute to the development of public policies that concern it.
