We believe in an interconnected city, where citizens and collectives conspire towards common goals: a network of people and projects that actually converge beyond the shallow conventions of social media and the digital realm.

Amongst the numerous joys that the VIC project has delivered us so far, one of the most unequivocally fulfilling is the daily satisfaction of collaborating with engaging projects run by real people, with whom we are thankful to share a a drink, a bite and —ultimately— our dreams.

We thank all of our friends for being there. At the end of the day, it’s that complex balancing of rotating parts that keeps high speed engines running.
