Social designer Manon van Hoeckel exposes a direct consequence of the increasing pressure and activity in North. Since July, several neighbourhoods have introduced paid parking, a difficulty for the neighbourhood and a cause for much debate. As a result of this new parking policy, the residents receive fewer visits from family and friends. Between 26 and 30 September, Van Hoeckel offers a number of free parking spaces, in exchange for stories about everyday problems and their solutions in the (future) neighbourhood.

You can get acquainted with Parking for Stories at the Meidoornplein from 26 to 30 September.

This project is part of Social Capital #1 (September 2018).
