Narratopias

Narratopias is a collaborative and open project to organize, on a global scale, a collective response to the call for “new narratives”. An invitation to embark on a search for alternative, transformative narratives as well as the collective practices making them emerge, and turn them into the seeds of concrete changes.

Within Narratopias, you can participate to:

  • A collaborative library of Transformative Narratives, from all over the world.
  • An exchange between practices that use arts and fiction to effect change, in order to build common knowledge and visibility
  • Open-source tools and games to invent, play with, and continue narratives.

Narratopias Next Activities

There is the need to create a “space” where communities that work on transforming imaginaries through collective practices learn from each other’s activities, dig deeper into the challenges they share, understand how these initiatives contribute to real-life change and together, give visibility and weight to their creative and collective practices.

We are organizing different dates, different moments, where you can share your Collective Practice.


Ingredients for Change: Collecting transformative practices

March 3rd from 5-7pm

If you are working on a repository, please share your work with us !

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 have 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 will start with fast-paced short presentations (Pecha-Kucha) and will conclude 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.

Past

February 7th, from 1-3:30 pm CET: Rehearsing the Revolution: storytelling for common ground dialogues**

“We believe that changes start from the inside and are convinced that co-creative art experiences can cultivate cultural shifts, make fundamental changes and collaborations possible even under circumstances when nothing else seems to work anymore.”
