Workshop of futures: session 1 "Agreements and commitments"
Wednesday, March 4. From 4 pm to 7 pm at SERCADE.
The Grigri Pixel program, over the four editions developed to date, has constituted an open space for reflection and action in which it has been possible to explore and to collectivelly elaborate a great diversity of content around different issues linked to life in common in the city.
At a time when we are faced with a reality of climate emergency and devaluation of life in common, we believe it is pertinent to be able to give ourselves the necessary time to reflect and develop materials around the stories and imaginary of the future that is produced from other territories, knowledge, communities, and forms of life made invisible or denied.
Likewise, picking up SDG number 11 on the construction of sustainable cities and communities, we believe it is unavoidable to give ourselves a participatory space from which to collectively imagine the city of the future and where to design, in a cooperative way, the conditions so that it is possible to deploy a livable life in it.
A proposal that advocates recovering the future from the detection of our common problems, those that are capable of crossing different languages, tasks, and capacities and that have the potential to re-enchant and re-symbolize the spaces of our cities; to elaborate other narratives, to teach us other, transformative practices, from which to imagine other futures in a common world.
Preparation of the official photos of the 1st International Summit on the Futures of Madrid.
Over four consecutive weeks, we will get involved, together with migrants from sub-Saharan Africa who use the SERCADE center – with whom we have been collaborating since the second edition of Grigri Pixel in 2018 – in the development of four sessions on the creation of body devices and small scenographies that will serve as a pretext to imagine and materialize the First International Summit on the Futures of Madrid. A meeting in which we will reflect on the present, share perspectives on the future, and share tools that allow us to be together in our ability to decide on the city we want.
During this first session, we worked to establish the EIGHT COMMISSIONS – made up of five people each – that will define the contents and proposals of this meeting during the last two working sessions.
We take as a starting point the elaboration of a CATALOG OF PERSONAL IMAGINARIES; Throughout this process, each of the people participating in the summit will define a SKILL, an OBJECT, and a PLACE in the city of Madrid that are meaningful in a personal way.
From this catalog, and through group work, a sketch was made to make the eight official photos representative of each of the summit committees.
These were the commissions that were set up, as well as the people who are part of each commission, their personal imaginaries, and the sketch that was drawn up to make the portraits.
