join the movement ‪#‎TimeForImpact‬ and take it beyond ‪#‎BiennaleArchitettura2016‬!
Dear friends of AiD,

We have been promoting #Timeforimpact on our social media and you might be curious about what it is exactly…

We are embarking a new tool/ platform that helps connect world-wide talents and resources to community architecture initiatives. Now we take ourselves to the 'Front' where projects and an international community of experts gather in one place and time - Biennale Architettura 2016. Together with space&matter New Generations, AiD is thrilled to kick off a movement through Timeforimpact!

#TimeForImpact is also our pilot to test and identify the most effective tools to accelerate community architecture initiatives.

So what does it do? As a pilot, #TimeForImpact sets architects and experts in motion for continuation of urgent projects emerging during and most importantly - beyond the Biennale. The pilot is also our roadmap to further develop a platform to accelerate, or in our own words, to BUILDIFY community architecture startups.

Meet us at our opening, join the movement and take it beyond the exhibition!
