care beyond crises
by design or by disaster conference
17–19 december 2020
with Niels Hendriks (Dementia lab), Amy Franceschini (Future Farmers), Bianca Elzenbaumer (Alpine Community Economies Lab / Brave New Alps) and many more. Full announcement and call.
Coping with crises through care. Care as a way leading beyond crises. As both, coping practices and transformation approach… With this focus, we are preparing our annual conference of the MA Eco-Social Design By Design or by Disaster 2020, actually for the third time. We had to cancel the two conferences in April and in October after having prepared them. We don’t give up, but do another online „social un-distancing-experience“ building upon our first Beyond Crisis Conference, which took place during the first lockdown in April.
call and registration
We open a lightweight and quick call for short 7-minute Talks and Presentations, Collaborative Workshops (1,5-2h) and Sessions for all Senses (free format with music, performance, dialogue, and all kinds of body-mind experiences). The selected submissions will become part of the proceedings. Please use this form to submit your proposals until 30 November, or enter your ideas, needs and expectations as a participant while registering here. Based on all this we will form clusters of short inputs combined, dialogical formats, workshops and sessions for all sense around emerging sub-topics such as mutual care practices and networks, care-enabling structures, transformation by care, care for food- & agri-cultures, care for commons, care in community economies, care and activism, care for climate justice, care for more-than-humans, …
We are also looking for volunteers, in particular as visual note takers (using miro) on Friday. Please let us know via the registration form, if you can give a hand :)
