TESTING UTOPIAS IN DEMOCRACY AND SOCIETY

Sara Løve Daðadóttir, co-founder Utopian Union www.utopianunion.org

During the workshop Sara will present the The Ministry of Ideas & National Assembly crowd sourcing project that took place in Iceland in 2009 and 2010. Inspired by this pro-active citizenship initiative we will discuss the following questions:

– What are the core issues in your community and how are they being dealt with?

– What opportunities does technological development bring for new strategies and actions?

– If ‘utopia’ is an essential part of political change, what does a viable utopia look like?

The Utopian Union is a young collective based in Berlin focused on creative non-institutional learning, interdisciplinary collaboration and engaged artistic practices. The UU founding members are: Caspar Leander Andresen, Sara Løve Dadadottir, Zoë Claire Miller, Tea Palmelund. In 2015-16 we are hosting workshops in Venice, Berlin and Copenhagen respectively. Each of them addresses site-specific societal issues, using art as an imaginary space for new world models. We bring people together who share an interest in creating impact, communicating new perspectives and building utopias.
