Further Information

REITIR: Tools For Transformation provides clear and easy-to-use tools and ideas to build a successful platform for impactful collaborations. It gives a thorough overview over how the REITIR workshop is structured and a full catalogue of the 60+ projects made since 2012.

The book is for anyone interested in cross-disciplinary collaborations, workshop organisation, site-specific projects and public space interventions.

Please use!

REITIR: Tools For Transformation will be available for free on the REITIR website for anyone to download, use and share. The book is in standard A4 format to make it easy and cheap for anyone to print.

This crowdfunding campaign aims to produce a printed version of the book, which compliments the amazing designs and material quality of the content. It is a statement to our hands-on methods and ambition to develop ideas into concrete outcomes + new books smell nice!

Structure of the book

REITIR: Tools For Transformation is divided into three parts: Workshop – where the production and ideology of REITIR is explained; Tools – where the methods are defined into a one-page ease-to-use tools and Projects – where all projects made by REITIR participants in the past five years are presented.

In addition the book features Pro-tips – with tips and practical know-how spread throughout the book and the Cookbook – featuring the best recipes from Alla (the workshop chef) and her advice on how to cook for a big group of people, with a tight budget.

The illustrations

These four A3 prints of illustrations from the book are from the tools: Collaborate, Dogma, Research Walk and Curation. The prints are photo print quality on Matt Coated 180g paper and can be acquired through different pledges.

What is REITIR

Since 2012, REITIR has annually invited about 25 people from around the world to Siglufjörður to participate in an two week experimental workshop addressing collaboration, site-awareness, cross-disciplinary tools and social engagement and interventions in the public space. REITIR includes professionals from all around the world with all sorts of expertise that collaborate on projects addressing topics found in the locality. The aim of REITIR is to be an active and impactful part of Siglufjörður’s cultural development by creating a platform for innovation and critical thinking through collaboration.

REITIR is a part of Urban Space Expanders (USE) a non-profit organisation based in Aarhus, Denmark and Reykjavík, Iceland.
