After each of the first two meetings (Berlin and Madrid) we produced collectively a journal that we handed out internally at the following meeting. This was a way of updating all the participants on the state of the Partnership and exchange thoughts within the group.

The journals are available for free download. They include a variety of contributions in both text and image regarding the internal processes in Local Squares, the urban contexts in which the meetings took place, and wider issues.

Madrid Journal

In addition, the coordinating partner Interactive Workshop of Europe GbR wrote articles about the Partnership and explicitly the Madrid meeting (2013) and presented it at the Public Space Biennale in Rome, May 2013.
