The SUŠAK ACTION  by Nika Rukavina is conceived as a series of interventions in collaboration with the students from the Civil Engineering School, and mentors Branka Batričević and Asja Rukavina Bikić.

Walking together through the streets of Sušak the teenagers explore abandoned spaces. They explain their views on these spaces, share their wishes, name the missing contents they think would make their neighbourhood more pleasant for living and schooling. After the walk, research about the historical and social factors determining public spaces follows. The aim is to motivate the students to articulate their own wishes and devise the contents to satisfy their needs. The Sušak Action questions civic involvement, especially among the youth, in the shaping of living space. It attempts to motivate the local community and city administration to consider revitalisation needs in this part of the city.

Nika Rukavina was born in 1980 in Rijeka and graduated from the School of Applied Art and Design, Department of Sculpture Design. After that she graduated from Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice, Italy, under professor A. Grassi. She won the Ivo Kalina Award, City of Rijeka Award for best exhibition in 2009 (VIA international project) and the first prize of the Croatian Association of Visual Artists of Rijeka at the Exhibition 60+1 – Expanded Media in the multimedia category. She pursues multimedia, performance and painting.

SUŠAČKA  AKCIJA  Nike Rukavine odvija se kao niz urbanih intervencija u  suradnji s učenicima Građevinsko tehničke škole i mentoricama Brankom Batričević i Asjom Rukavina Bikić.

Zajedničkom šetnjom kroz ulice Sušaka učenici istražuju napuštene prostore. Iskazuju kakav odnos imaju prema tim prostorima, kakve su njihove želje, koji su sadržaji koji nedostaju da im kvart učine ugodnijim, i življim i životnijim. Nakon šetnje slijedi istraživanje o povijesnim, društvenim i ekonomskim faktorima koji određuju javne prostore. Cilj je potaknuti učenike da artikuliraju vlastite želje i osmisle sadržaje koji će zadovoljiti njihove potrebe. Sušačka akcija propituje uključenost građana, a osobito mladih, u oblikovanje životnog prostora. Kreiranjem fiktivnih, privremenih izloga i pročelja, nastoji potaknuti lokalno stanovništvo i gradsku upravu na razmišljanje o potrebama revitalizacije ovog dijela grada.
