The Intersection workshop Urban Therapy took place during the three day long guided experience presented in Pécs by Krétakör. The workshop addressed the relation of site-specific performances and public space with a special focus on community participation, bringing together artists, art practitioners and theorists reflecting on the above mentioned themes through their work. Workshop is part of the preoperational phase of artistic research of the Intersection project.

In the performance portion of the project Jaroslav Jičínský Utopia Society public and community performance participants discovered the temporary and imaginary transformation of the urban peripheries and the long-forgotten story of the Utopia Society of Pécs.
