One day working on our convivialist* toolbox


With various artistic experiments and formats we will explore the nature of our interdependency and what every individual brings to the table. The day offers open space between workshop, practice, constructive dispute, action and re-action. Experts of the everyday – as all participants are – are invited to share their knowledge and questions. We start the day at an agreed time, but will leave the end open for formats to emerge from the process. If one idea manifests in reality afterwards, a convivialist contribution has been made. A reporting back of manifested ideas and a documentation is highly welcomed. We are interested in the consequences of the NOW for TOMORROW. The toolbox day offers an experimental format of approaching a human, societal or globally urgent topic.

convivialist* from the Latin ‘con-vivere’, to live together. The term is meant to point up the fact that the main task we face is that of working out a new philosophy and developing practical forms of peaceful interaction.
