Original event description
Sprouting from the Feral Creative Practices track, this workshop invites students from creative areas working with socio-ecological themes to share their favorite tangible, digital or imaginary tools that can assist, provoke and advance socio-ecological transformations in troubled times.
Participants will be asked to bring examples of the sets of tools – cards, cookbooks, manifestos, guidelines, and similar – that they are working with and share them with others.
We want to understand what it takes to learn how to design in troubled times while reflecting how transformational creative practices operate in different social contexts and environments.
????Interested students (individuals or in groups) should send a one-page proposal with a short statement of interest in the workshop theme, with an example of a tool they want to bring to the discussion. Please send those proposals to email@example.com, no later than Thursday 6th May, midnight [Anywhere on Earth]????
