UNTITLED Companionship

Untitled Companionship is an infrastructure of care, joy and push for those wanting to change the system through imagination and experimentation. The companionship will offer peer support and collaboration to strengthen each other and our work. It is for people who work in realms where there are no best practices or referee articles available. Companions provide each other with a safe haven to develop their avant-garde thinking and projects in a critical yet playful company.

The program is gentle in order to help us be brave. Untitled Companionship is a mixture of self-organized work and carefully curated interactions at House Meetings.

House Meetings

Purpose: Help to see the connections between your work and large scale social change, engage in the community, overcome silos and find allies in your mission. A different topic will be explored at each session.
Meetings are a curated combination of arts, embodied exercises, provocations, conversations and peer support and evaluation. Organized by the Untitled team together with different companions each time.
Intensity: Online once every 1 to 2 months, five times in 2021.

  • You want to support others by sharing perspectives and networks
  • You allow yourself to be playful, too
  • You are keen to create new, joyful narratives of transformation
  • You can commit to meet with your companions of transformation once every two months and organize one of those meetings yourself
  • You are willing to turn the conversations into an output: e.g. festival program, a creative output, a text, a project
