Mapping the Cultural Ecosystem of Llodio




Llodio Town Council  in collaboration with the SOS Parkea Lamuza association.




The open innovation methodologies developed by Conexiones improbables have been used to complete a project entitled “Mapping the Cultural Ecosystem of Llodio”, which has helped to map the infrastructures and spaces for cultural use existing in this town in Alava, as well as others that may become so.

The mapping project comprised four key milestones:

  • An initial OpenLab to which all the political parties making up the Llodio Town Council were invited to participate, as well as cultural, sports and social associations.
  • A Collective Mapping Activity that sought the participation of the inhabitants of Llodio, as well as municipal organisations, groups and associations.
  • A session with the Strategic Committee in which the Improbable Challenges resources was used to “provide focus”.
  • A final OpenLab in which the inhabitants, associations, groups and political parties of Llodio were represented in order to compare the results of the Strategic Committee.



Mapping the Cultural Ecosystem of Llodio was undertaken with the help of a specific web application that was developed to mark the places in the town where cultural activities are conducted, as well as others that can be used in a cultural manner. It was therefore a question of mapping both tangible and intangible spaces that could be located either in closed or open areas (a park, a square, etc.).

The digital platform was developed in Spanish and Basque and has the special feature of being able to continue with the Mapping project. In other words, it is an open tool that has been left to the town as a legacy of the project, in which the town’s inhabitants can continue to indicate places in which they believe there is, or may be, a cultural space or agent.

Analogue mapping was also conducted on one day of digital mapping so that people who were not overly proficient in new technologies could participate.

On that day, a total of 159 files were created of agents and spaces, which meant an average of more than 3 completed files per user, resulting in the mapping of 63 agents and 96 spaces.

The database was available for all users in order to make it more accessible and allow future analysis of this data.



The project resulted in a document produced by c2+i/Conexiones improbables containing some general strategic guidelines on how to use the cultural spaces of Llodio. It was presented in the Culture Commission of the Llodio Town Council on 4 May 2017.
