Ingredients for Change: Collecting and sharing transformative practices

🗓 March 3, 2022 ⏰ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm CET, 💻online

Creative practices have a lot to offer in terms of fostering a much needed transformation. CreaTures and Plurality University Network have been mapping libraries, repositories, hubs and other collections of creative and collective practices that pave paths towards sustainability transformations and new narratives. The goal of this work is to understand the social and ecological impacts of a wide range of transformative creative initiatives and to create opportunities for exchange and connection among these collections.

We invited a number of initiators and managers of such repositories to share their work, discuss their motivations and explain their selection and organisation criteria. The event started with fast-paced short presentations and concluded with a round table discussion tracing commonalities and differences in approaches, desired and achieved results, possible audiences, and seeking opportunities to amplify the reach and impact of these valuable resources. 

A report of the event, has been put together by Plurality University’s Julliettes Grossmann and is accessible here.
