ParaArtFormations (ParaUmetničkeFormacije, PUF) emerge in spaces of urban conflict where traditional forms of (urban)planning are not achievable due to the physical destruction, contaminated social environment and institutional weakness. Their strategic arsenal includes artistic research, community arts, urban pedagogy, scene design and artistic interventions.

ParaArtFormations combine broad range of location factors in order to develop time-based toolbox suitable for uncertain condition in which conventional ‘development and regeneration’ models fail to fulfill new-formed needs.

ParaArtFormations recruit diverse actors for particular tasks and operate through artistic, academic, cultural and activist networks.
