The research project “Methods”investigates
the methodologies applied in creative processes
for the social responsible transformation. A research that for several
years has involved personalities of the artistic world who are parting
from specific social problematic issues and through a network of communities,
organizations, public and private institutions have come to realize new
modalities of exchange, dialogue and co-creation.
At its fifth edition, the project is opening to a new and wider phase: the extension of research about methods of disciplines that go beyond the artistic context.
The objective of the workshop is to compare and share methods from different disciplines that facilitate processes of transformation both collective and individually, with particular attention to the methodologies with participatory, interdisciplinary and experimental characteristics, and those that set “the human at the centre” produce a growth in the individual.
The workshop will examinate the methodologies presented by each participant with the aim to:
• reflect on the transferable possibility of methods or of some parts of them (tools, procedures, etc.) to other contexts
• develop new methods of co-creation, that might have an innovative, participatory, sustainable interdisciplinary character
• establish a base of knowledge accessible and that can be spread to all the figures of creative and social processes
Whom it is aimed for
The workshop is open to 30 participants – freelancers or representatives of groups – who apply in their work methods – phases, tools, principles and practices – which favour processes of change, in particular with partecipatory, interdisciplinary and experimental characters, in any of the following disciplines and areas:
anthropology, communication, economics, education, holistic medicine, music and performative arts, politics and civil services, industrial processes, psychology, scientific research, cognitive sciences, social, spirituality, urban planning and architecture.
Where and when
The workshop will take place in Biella, at Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto from the 20th to the 24th May 2010.
The workshop and the papers will be in English.
