The Assembly of Desires: Rethinking Socioculture
What constitutes socioculture today? And how should it develop? It's time for a redefinition, we thought, when we started the idea of remeasuring our work in 2019. We asked ourselves and others what values and principles we could agree on, what socioculture means in the 21st century. We would now like to continue this path with an explorative and creative future congress: the Assembly of Wishes.
Stimulus of the Assembly of Wishes is a workshop program, conceived
by the artistic director Sibylle Peters and her team colleagues
Esther Pilkington and Christopher Weymann. Nine
artists will give impulse workshops between art and activism.
art and activism, bringing us into an intensive exchange about the future of
the future of socioculture. We are very much looking forward to this
to this open-ended, creative process!
10:00 Arrival & warm up
11:00 Kick-off with interviews
16:30 Rethinking socioculture? Discussion & Manifesto
17:30 Mini-Gala (until you have to catch the train)
Breaks are scheduled at 13:00 h and at 16:00 h!
In the run-up to the meeting, we have asked 45 actors of socioculture NRW about their wishes, demands and visions: Which audience do they want to reach? What should there be more money for? What touches and what annoys them in their work? How do they live and think socioculture? At our Future Congress, these wishes, experiences and demands will be the starting point for discussions with up to 300 actors, experts and friends. They will form the core of a day of self-understanding, inspiration and discussion that will lead us to a common manifesto.
