Processes of Change

In 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, to take place in Biella, Italy, on 20-24 May 2010, 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.

This research has involved personalities of the art world who are parting from specific social issues and through a network of communities, organizations, public and private institutions have come to realize new modalities of exchange, dialogue and co-creation. The workshop, curated and conducted by Love Difference and artway of thinking, promoted by Love Difference and Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto, with the support of LLP Grundtvig, will examine 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, and
  • establish a base of knowledge accessible and that can be spread to all the figures of creative and social processes.

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 participatory, interdisciplinary and experimental character, 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.

Application deadline is 9 April 2010.
