Short description: ARIA research seminar: Commoning Democracy, art practices between politics, policy and art productions, Art and Urban Governance



About the seminar

This seminar intends to open a discussion about forms of decision-making in policy frameworks and in cultural organizations inviting scholars, cultural professionals, policy-makers and activists. How can we generate co-imaginative processes to stimulate collaboration of different layers of our society? A ‘co-imaginative politics’ appears as a practice where the encounter between top-down policy making and bottom-up actions - enacted by artists and the civil society at large - is creating novel democratic engagements and arrangements. Is this a form of (cultural) resistance to global pressure?
