The strategic phase of the project addresses areas of the city that have monofunctional uses.  By inhabiting vacant space with art events and informal trading the diversity of a district can be increased.  The project for a temporary market and music festival outside Gard de Nord is a case study of the “temporary intervention” typology of  the urban set aside strategy.  Ephemeral programmes that can appear and disappear in a day can be harnessed to articulate political and artistic statements about urban development.
