“Democracy in practice: the contributions of participation”

“Democracy in practice: the contributions of participation” invites practitioners active in companies, government, and not-for-profit organizations outside of academia to join us for a participative gathering on Wednesday 22 of August from 16.30 to 18.00h (at Z33, Hasselt) just before the Conference reception. This gathering also forms the starting debate for two-year project “The Politics of Design”. This project researches participatory practices’ contributions to democratic ways of giving form to our environment. It questions how design practitioners from the region and beyond (on a national en international level) give form to and see the role of developing a participatory practice.

Besides providing a platform for great networking, the evening will also feature a tour of the Situated Actions – from 17:30 to 18:00 the participants will be invited to interact with the works presented in our exhibition at Z33. At 18.00h participants will join the conference ceremony awards and reception.
