New technologies are providing the needed infrastructure for increased 
collaboration and co-creation in public spaces. It is no longer novel to 
engage citizens in urban planning sessions using diverse shared spaces 
and augmented reality applications, to have audiences create content in 
museums, to see libraries offering maker spaces, to allow audiences to 
co-create storylines in theaters. However, research on such public 
co-design still needs to catch up with emerging practices and address, 
at various levels of granularity, reflections on what type of activities 
are proposed and for what purpose, how are the co-design explorations 
carried out, where are they carried out and who to include in ways that 
are relevant for both participants as well as researchers.

For this focus section, we are particularly interested in exploring 
temporalities of engagement and their relation to outcomes, where 
outcomes are seen as either co-created artifacts or a new knowledge 
gained in relation to the time investment. Pop-up and Drop-in spaces are 
becoming common and may happen in a variety of formats that engage 
people over a short period. For example, Pop-up graphite art, cafés, or 
parking lot gardens may engage for as little as a few minutes, usually 
random by passers. Drop-in civic events, games, museum or theater 
co-creative events also engage over a short time, but frequently, 
already interested and motivated audiences. Intermediate and long-term 
engagements, e.g., participatory design (PD), can also happen in diverse 
formats and under different agreements with participants, with work 
taking place in libraries, museums, parks and other places suitable for 
longer-term engagements.

*Topics of Interest*
We are particularly focusing on methods and evaluation of civic and 
cultural engagement activities. We welcome all papers that help identify 
good research methods and methodologies, as well as best practices 
regarding temporal and spatial configurations in co-creative projects 
within public cultural and civic sphere.

Topics may include:
• Explorations of relation between the length of engagement and the 
expected outcomes
• Public spaces and their relation to temporalities of engagement
• Understanding of ‘participatory culture’ when public spaces for 
participation and engagement in cultural sphere varies in time
• Temporality and methods chosen for engagement
• Engagement with current “hot issues” and creation of a “critical mass” 
necessary to set changes in motion
