year : ON GOING location : Italy subject : partecipatory proccess work : workshop + communication design
The research and design interventions I am going to carry out are focused on collective and narrative practices used within social movements. What I want to do is to extract the practices from the context and reuse them to build a co-design project of communication and storytelling to encourage passive citizens to become active.
The project through a series of events provides an inquiry into the relational practices of the alternative and care economy. Such inquiry will take into account perspectives and solutions from a range of key actors thanks to an open device, a flux of co-production of the “we”, therefore the final output is shaped by the process. The project aims to be an incubator of ideas on all those relational practices that can be reproduced for the common good.
THE SENSE OF NOT BEING SEPARATED attempts to build bridges between the complexity of the different kinds of action, their narratives and the possible efforts and challenges to build inclusive devices to encourage dialogue, the creation of new social relationships and collaborations, in order to enhance the people’s capacity to act.
The basic idea, is involving people in a process of discussion, exchange, learning and analysis of our collective and individual experiences about economic alternative “re-production”. The method that I will use is a participatory approach for a “relational design project”.
