Freehouse would prefer to organize Rotterdam South as a Social Harbor. Traditionally harbors not only serve as gates between the city and the world, they are also dynamic places in which there are always plenty of social, cultural, and economic developments going on. They generate movement of people, ideas, and goods and are nodes of migration flows. Harbors stimulate innovation and create employment. This in turn attracts new people, which means that harbors play an important role in the development and positioning of the city, the region, and the country.
At the request of the IABR and in collaboration with the Afrikaanderwijk Cooperative, Freehouse has brought these ideas together in Social Harbor, an activity and intervention program that will take place during IABR–2016 in the Afrikaanderwijk in Rotterdam.
