*This session needs some preparations from online participants before the session. Read on!*
At UNTITLED, Mari Keski-Korsu will enact a performative intervention called ‘Holding Space with Yarrow’. It is a participatory and performative session that engages with yarrow through foot baths, hydro bodies and meditation. Yarrow (Siankärsämö) is one of the oldest plant remedies in Nordic region and is considered to help with many illnesses and conditions. Yet what may this powerful plant, which many consider merely a weed, mean for us today? How could its voice be heard in human communities?

The session can accommodate 15 people per session; 5 on site and 10 online. The sessions are not suitable for anyone allergic to asters (composite plants). If you’re taking part in Holding Space with Yarrow online, please prepare your foot bath in advance. You can consider this as a ritual towards our time together – making something ready for yourself with a lot of positive energy and love.

Collect about four handfuls of yarrow flowers and leaves from your yard or nearby park. In urban areas, the best places to find yarrow are abandoned sites where grass is not cut. If you can’t find the flowers anymore, search for the leaves. Remember to respect the plant and don’t collect everything, leave something to continue growing, too.

See pictures of the plant at https://untitled.community/keski-korsu-holding-space-yarrow/

To prepare your foot bath: - Add the yarrow into a litre of hot water - Leave it for about 20 minutes - Pour the hot yarrow water into a washing basin and add enough water for it to reach your ankles. - Don’t put your feet in the bath right away, let’s do that together - Have a towel and pair of clean, warm socks ready by the side - As we start our session, sit comfortably on your chair so that you can see the screen to connect with everyone and your footpath is close to your reach.

Mari Keski-Korsu is a transdisciplinary artist who explores how ecological changes manifest in Everyday life. The work is based on Collaborations with different kinds of communities, individuals and species. Her medium of expression is a hybrid combination of performance, visual arts and live art. Her current practice for several years now, is focused on interspecies communication and care, aiming to enable empathy towards whole ecosystems. She is interested in intersections in between art, activism and science from permaculture and ecofeminist perspectives. In 2020 -2022, she is an artist member of an art & science team working in the Access Abisko program in sub-Arctic Sweden, Researching on how climate breakdown affects values ​​and Rituals.

Reimagining Our Roles in the Fight For Tomorrow by Reboot (US)
Hosts
Panthea Lee is the Executive director of Reboot. She is passionate about driving unlikely collaborations between communities, activists, movements, and institutions to tackle structural inequity—and working with cultural institutions to build momentum for courageous change.

The multiple, overlapping crises of 2020 have magnified the deep fractures at the heart of our social and political orders, both within countries and across borders. To reimagine our world, we must center the voices and imaginations of those who have long suffered. This requires those with power to reckon with their privilege, and to understand their complicity in sustaining this broken world.

But in this session we will create a safe space to do this together, and will respect wherever you are in the process. So whether you want to actively participate, or just to listen, we welcome you and celebrate your willingness to do this work.

Sustainability standards and green building initiatives are holding us back. Green building initiatives and Sustainability standards are masking the problem of over-consumption and as such, only Accelerating the Destruction of our livelihood. We need buildings that are not just sustainable or even net-zero, but ones that actually balance out the massive construction boom of this decade. We would like to explore the idea of ​​moving to regenerative real estate and urban development. One where each building would contribute more than it takes on all aspects of its existence.

Title
Imagine a New Contract for Welfare Society By Mikko-Pekka Hanski (FI)
Hosts
Mikko-Pekka Hanski is the founder of the experiment and happy to connect with everyone who wants to reimagine social systems! In addition to imagining a better future Mikko-Pekka is a Co-Founder and Head of Studio for a global design agency Idean.

Welcome to a conversation and experimentation workshops to imagine what would be the new contract and universal basic insurance for a better life. At this point my company (www.hanskismaskinservice.com) is taking the imagination forward and the project code name is Universal Basic Hope.

Welcome on Thursday to have a conversation about the just-cause and on Friday 18th at 11am EEST (9am GMT) to co-create an experimentation.

The UBH (Universal Basic Hope) is about creating a service and platform where we all can make better choices regarding our life and realize the impact of our choices in the feeling of relevance and meaning. The scope of the idea is to respond to too small worriers early enough, create glimpses of hope and provide practical solutions to improve life. I am challenging the fundamentals of welfare society. My argument is that the current system is siloed and focused to solve everyday problems too late. The other objective is to remove or make fast, easy but dangerous solutions to worries obsolete. With this I mean especially quick loan providers with greedy interest programs.

The UBH is not yet out there. Collaborating with the Untitled Festival and with you is in key role on my journey to make real life experiments first in Finland and then later in the EU. At this point the service concept prototype is being developed and we are starting customer validations this fall. So far we have done extensive research about the current macro-level social welfare system and also investigated together with Demos Helsinki about the everyday worries that we finns have today.

My goal is to imagine a new contract for the social security and welfare system; find a solution that is adaptive to personal life situations, empowering not shameful, compassionate not dangerous and understanding the true nature of everyday life.

Developing the evolution of social welfare systems like in Finland is a daunting task. In fact the system I have a privilege to live in is close to perfect. I am sure that every system has room to improve even the one from the happiest country in the world. I invite everyone to imagine how we can create a engaging, motivating, uplifting and ethically sound system that we can provide not only in Finland but for the rest of the world.

TOKEN (Transformative Impact Of BlocKchain tEchnologies iN Public Services) is an EU funded project. Its ultimate goal is to develop an experimental ecosystem enabling the adoption of Distributed Ledger Technology and to prove its value as a driver for the transformation of public services, via highly replicable Use Cases.

This conversation reimagines models of data ownership: Who has a say on how data is used, collected and made available for others to use? For citizens, companies and NGOs alike, how can we ensure that the data produced by them and about themselves is used in a way that they desire? And what are the consequences of moving away from extractivist data practices, towards an era of data agency?

Living in Solkivuori forest, Tampere, Finland (that is Solkivuori’s Collaborative Flying squirrel care and protection forest). They are professionals of forestry, legislation, bureaucracy and unconventional co-operations.

In their own words:

”During the festival days we are having a round table discussion with human and other-than-human experts. On our discussion agenda we have common-to-many-species-things that shape our shared Futures, such as hunger, roots / flying and sustainable livelihoods.

We have done research for the discussions by making some future-leap-Flying-Orientation-interviews for Untitled community and participants. You can see some digested fragments on our internet-influencing-channels Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter. We will continue in making the interviews after the Festival. If you wish to be interviewed by two Siberian Flying squirrels, please contact them through metsaesitys@gmail.com

Our mission is to stop the ongoing mass extinctions threatening both squirrels and humans. To further our goal, we have started developing ways for human–Siberian Flying squirrel -co-operation. One way is to learn to use human platforms to create spaces for interspecies utopian conversations. We believe this will commit to nourishing the political imaginations of our multispecies societies.

”Anything is possible for a squirrel with an agenda! Everything is possible for a squirrel who has an agenda!” ”Kaikki on mahdollista oravalle, jolla on esityslista!”

As the world is in Transformation just including people to current projects and institutions is not enough. The right way would be to build a more just world together. We want to invite people to explore what comes after diversity and inclusion, how to centralize the marginalized and take on big issues such as just and fair distribution of value in the urban setting: in urban planning, in housing, in services, in public spaces and in work.

Any social or political envisioning is constrained by an invisible frame: by the implicit values and views on which it is created, most importantly its view of the nature of human beings.
A big vision begins with a vision for the “Being” of human beings. We need to go back to basics if we are to rediscover our imagination and create possibility for ourselves and our societies. Any social or political envisioning is constrained by an invisible frame: by the implicit values and views on which it is created, most importantly its view of the nature of human beings. For example, much of modern economic and political thought rests on the assumption that you or I know what we want (think markets, democracy etc). However, most wisdom traditions teach us that discovering what we want is actually very hard and takes deep practice and reflection.

In this session, participants will enquire into the nature of “Being” for human beings and how this would translate into a big vision for humanity and a new framework for progress. A mixture of play, embodiment and reason will be used in this workshop like session.

Title
Reimagine Rewarding Work by PAM (FI)
Hosts
With its 220 000 members Service Union PAM is the biggest trade union in Finland. We represent people employed in the private service sector.

What is rewarding work? It is something we think work should be for everyone: that the work each and every one of us does feels rewarding, but just as importantly we don’t forget to reward the work of others. For us, the concept of Rewarding Work embodies the collective future. A future where we care for ourselves but also for each other. It is through the concept of Rewarding Work that we want to take an open-minded look at the future of work life, society and the role of trade unions in them.

In this session participants are asked to open their mind and step into the shoes of others. We work together in order to form a vision of collective future where Rewarding Work – in all it’s many shapes and forms – is something that belongs to us all.

A Kinship Photo

Kinship Photo
Art and Imagination
Hosts
Kinship Collective from the MA Photography program at Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Together with artist and mentor Maija Annikki Savolainen

A Kinship Photo is a moment of contemplation. It is an exploration of the physical and virtual spaces through a collaborative photogram. The Kinship procedure creates shadowlike images that turn the power structures of photographing upside down, and broaden the meaning of friendship.

Kinship photo is made for a festival participants who are tired of conference calls and seek for a way to connect.
With this piece two people meet: one of them online and the other onsite at the festival premises or in a nearby location. With the help of gentle instructions and a material envelope they explore the physical space of their close surroundings. The aim is to find elements, places, or ways of being that both participants feel kin of. When a mutual agreement has taken place, the two people with the chosen kinships get exposed onto a light sensitive paper. During the procedure, all parties have to stay still and focused. It is an opportunity to breath deep and contemplate on the closeness and distance between themselves and other beings. When the exposure is done, the picture on a light sensitive paper remains as a memory of that shared moment.

With this simple gesture we believe it’s possible to create and explore new spaces and places that are not only virtual or physical, but genuinely both. They are experienced, shared moments facilitated by light within communication technologies, and marked by light being trapped on photographic paper.

We, Dominik Fleischmann, Emilia Pennanen, Jenni Toivonen, Kristiina Mäenpää and Tatu Heinämäki, are from the MA Photography program at Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Together with artist and mentor Maija Annikki Savolainen we have developed a photography-based work for the festival which includes multiple collaborations between human participants and other beings. Our shared interest in photography is to explore its possibilities as a world-making practice.

TOKEN (Transformative Impact of Blockchain technologies in Public Services

Blockchain technologies are claimed to make it possible to develop and implement social technologies that can replace existing social apparatuses of public governance. This could mean for example implementing autonomous executing administration in public governance or building a governance system based on direct democracy – or conversely, distributed autonomous organizations outside public power taking over similar tasks.

In this conversation we explore a future where by scaling different distributed ledger technology solutions replace current public organisations and processes. What kind of impact would it have on democracy, public services and on our societies at large? Would this be a desirable direction to develop our public administration? Can technological solutions be a substitute for institutional trust?

Launched in January 2020, TOKEN (Transformative Impact of Blockchain technologies in Public Services) is an EU funded project whose ultimate goal is to develop an experimental ecosystem to enable the adoption of Distributed Ledger Technology and to prove its value, via highly replicable Use Cases, as a driver for the transformation of public services.

We have to reimagine the democratic process by breaking out of the traditional governmental pattern of “decide, do, defend”. In an age of personalization, people feel left behind by government – decisions are remote and inflexible, and they cannot easily make real changes in their communities and societies.

The conversation on Day 1 tackle the long-term vision in preperation for Day 2, where we will think about what the first year of that transformation looks like. What can we do in the present, within a year? What are some practical ways to put down the first brick of the new government model depicted?

Hosts
Ilona Puskas, EIT Climate-KIC

We invite you to an intimate check-out session to process and integrate the sparks and triggerings of the day in a group setting, without restrictions as to what topics should emerge. The purpose is connecting, instead of networking. It takes the pressure off cerebral representation and can – paradoxically – result in profound Intellectual contributions. But it doesn’t have to. It is essentially an exercise around liberalizing ourselves and each other from expectations to unlock deeper and personal imaginaries. As importantly, it creates a spacious readiness to find a common rhythm and shape the collective identity of the Alliance.

Ilona Puskas (she / her) works in Community Activation at EIT Climate-KIC. She is a cultural programmer with a keen eye for irregulars and dormant rebels. She has worked in a variety of contexts from public policy to exponential technology, striving for positive impact. She is a devoted advocate for the revised role of the curator in facilitating sustainability, and solidarity in curatorial praxis.

Paulina Fröhlich, Head of the Program “Future of Democracy” at Progressives Zentrum, and Paul Jürgensen, Project Manager at Progressives Zentrum. Progressives Zentrum is a Berlin based, non-profit think tank devoted to promoting effective policies for social progress.

How we think about the future determines how we act today. For a long time, the prevailing belief has been that we are living in the age of TINA – There Is No Alternative. However, the rise of populism, Fridays for the Future and, more recently, the coronavirus crisis, are only the most recent developments to demonstrate that a vivid competition about alternative futures has begun.

In this conversation, we will reflect upon different conceptions of the future – from progressivism to collapsology – and think about why and how we should include future generations in today’s policy making.

Trees as Infrastructure
Experiment Workshop
Title
Trees as Infrastructure By EIT Climate-KIC (EU)
Hosts
EIT Climate-KIC is the EU’s climate innovation agency, working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon and resilient world by enabling systems transformation.

Within cities, trees and humans are enmeshed in a rich network of agencies and dependencies sharing intimate relations and mutual obligations towards preserving a common, liveable place. Using the lens of Trees as Infrastructure, we will imagine and identify the most controversial topics. For example – what happens when this topic becomes (inevitably) political?

In the workshops, participants will develop, refine, demonstrate, prototype, and launch or initiate transformative experiments. All participants are welcome. Leaders from city and regional governments will also be in attendance, alongside artists, business and other thought leaders. As the Deep Dive session on Day 2 will build on context from Day 1, either of the sessions on Thursday are a pre-requisite for Friday’s session.

A New Urban Development Model For Regenerative Buildings
Experiment Workshop
Title
A New Urban Development Model For Regenerative Buildings

The built environment should be reimagined. Decisions on designing, building, owning and operating buildings influence our lives and future massively. The model of property development is currently incapable of delivering truly sustainable buildings, in other words buildings that have a positive, even regenerative impact on our lives, communities and nature. We need to reimagine the basic institutions that govern buildings: the property rules and regulations, value creation, capturing and distribution mechanism, agency as well as material and natural cycles.

YLVA wants to explore how aiming to build a series of the world’s most sustainable buildings, could change the entire property industry. There is a number of ”the world’s most sustainable buildings”, but they remain anomalies. Ylva wants to experiment with a new model, “ learning for regenerative urban fabric” (LRUF), which is a new way of vision-driven, Collaborative and open source development of the built environment, that has the capacity to become the standard, worldwide . To support the LRUF model development Ylva is a) creating systematic frameworks to accumulate and share knowledge b) establishing a community of partners c) spreading and legitimizing radically sustainable building practices and d) developing a series of buildings.

Each experiments in the series of the world’s most sustainable building is designed to push the industry’s limits further , at least in new ways for Collaboration and knowledge sharing, new ways of investing as well as planning and building the construction outputs. It also gives for the property industry agency and responsibility to change itself. We need partners to develop and experiment with new building solutions, development sites and funding to continue the series and p eer-organizations for radically open knowledge sharing.

YLVA focuses on real estate and financial investments along with the hotel and restaurant sector. It is owned by the Student Union of the University of Helsinki and its profits are used to promote student activities. [ Source: ylva.fi ]

Futures Frequency – An open access workshop for popularizing and increasing futures thinking and change making capabilites
Experiment Workshop

By 2030 our average carbon footprint should be significantly lower to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. We need to reimagine our Everyday lives, governance, businesses, work – every aspect of our lives to match the earth’s carrying capacity.

Futures Frequency is a 3 hour workshop developed by Sitra . It challenges our assumptions about the future, leads us to imagine preferred Futures and build actions towards it. We will come together to practice Futures thinking and challenge ourselves to see the possibilities for change making. The maximum amount of participants is 20. We will use Zoom and Miro in the workshop.

Futures Frequency is a workshop method in progress and at the Untitled Festival we test its Prototype to help develop it. We welcome you to this pilot workshop that aims at using the workshop method as a tool to popularize Futures thinking and strengthen the link between Futures thinking and change making. The workshop will be targeted to people and organizations who are interested in these topics, but does not necessarily have any previous experience about them. The workshop is structured around three themes 1) Challenge existing assumptions about the future, 2) Imagine a preferred future, 3) Take action and shape the future.

Our aim is to use the workshop method as a tool to popularize Futures thinking and strengthen the link between Futures thinking and change making. If we are going to succeed in the transition to a fair and ecologically sustainable society, we need more people to have agency and ownership and to feel that they can have an impact towards the future and to have skills to do that.

We would like to find partners who would be interested in developing the Futures Frequency method further with Sitra. Also, we will make thematic versions of the workshop, meaning Futures Frequency about climate, democracy, data etc, and would love to find partners who work with a specific theme and would be interested in developing these thematic versions with us.

Sitra is an active fund for the future who studies, researches and brings together partners from different sectors in open-minded Trials and reforms. Its future-oriented works are aimed at making Finland succeed as a pioneer of sustainable wellbeing. This session will be Hosted by Jenna Lähdemäki-Pekkinen and Liisa Poussa. Jenna works as a social foresight specialist in Sitra’s Foresight and insight team and Liisa works in Sitra’s Foresight team, producing long-term foresight data in anticipation of the future.

Vertical Park Prototype with ’Goodlife’ Assets
Experiment Workshop

The Y-Foundation wants to experiment with a “Vertical Park” Prototype using ‘goodlife assets’. Vertical Park is a next generation Prototype of a living unit which combines working to housing, along with local food production, natural biodiversity and using Residents’ resources to promote their livelihoods. It is essentially a wooden structure for carbon-neutral construction where horizontal assets of goodlife are work, Sustainability and Residents’ own resources.

The role of housing is changing. Home, buildings and Neighborhoods are becoming basic units of a Vital city. The Y-Foundation has the Capability to be this kind of transformative Innovator in social housing. This is an open call for those who want to start working with us. The Vertical Park wooden structure would combine biodiversity, food production, carbon neutrality and a sustainable lifestyle, while bringing a new kind of social security and support to the local community for people in difficult life situations. The aim is to develop the concept to concrete implementation in 2020-2021 in order to start detail design process at 2022 and finally construction work at 2023.

Vertical Park is an idea that must be experimented with out-of-the-box thinkers as well as organizations that are capable of co-creating social housing in a new way. We have to Redefine housing as a part of basic income and sustainable living in a city. With regenerative architecture we want to define the role of housing in a neighborhood. We need partners who want to start working in practical environments Transforming the passive housing environments into active living environments. We need neighborhood activists, designers, architects, construction companies, service providers, third sector organizations as well as cities and local municipalities in order to evolve our Prototype to new practice.

The Y-Foundation is one of the key national developers of the Housing First principle in Finland. The Y-Foundation offers affordable rental housing with a vison to eradicate homelessness and promote well-being and sustainable lifestyles among its Tenants. The hosts are Juha Kaakinen, CEO of Y-Foundation, Kimmo Rönkä, Future Living Specialist from Rönkä Consulting and Pekka Pakkanen, architect from Planetary Architecture.

Beyond life-long learning
Conversation

Conversation with Minister of Education of Finland, Li Andersson

The COVID Pandemic has forced all the governments in the world to react and change rapidly. However, when we start coming out, the real Transformation work starts. How can governments reimagine themselves, not as agents of industrial growth, but as Arenas of Imagination and experimentation? I nstead of going back to the unsustainable normal, how can we take a new direction? In this conversation, we will discuss these particularly in the context of education and life-long-learning.

The purpose of this session is to find new viewpoints for the current Finnish government from the UNTITLED community. We will explore what education and learning means in a post-industrial and post-growth setting, where the purpose of developing oneself is not solely being able to compete in the labor market, but also to provide a wider benefit to society.

Li Andersson is the Minister of Education in Finland. She is the Party Leader of the Left Alliance.

Dichotomies at the Border of Fiction
Conversation

Who are we as the world around us changes? At the intersection of our subjective lives and our collective worlds lie profound dichotomies. And at the threshold of aesthetics and science, culture and politics, symbolic infrastructures versus solid urban forms there are still a host of territories to explore as well. All in a continuous yet contested relationship; traveling beyond that fragile, stubborn and siloing quality of language, concepts, fields, disciplines, bordered cities, individual bodies. But what possibilities can be found in the gaps, in that in-between, often turbulent and symbiotic territory where our truths and our fantasies clash and merge? At the border of fiction…

At one end lies fake news, alternate facts, profound and systemic biases, a human mass without individual agency. At the other end lies a more malleable reality, entangling us in invisible, unique and mysterious ways – in ways that once perceived and interiorized might allow us become more imaginative in how we live with each other, how we belong to each other.

Join the session with Gabriella Gómez-Mont, the former Chief Creative Officer of Mexico City, where she founded and directed Laboratorio para la Ciudad (‘Laboratory of the City’) the experimental and creative think tank for the Mexico City government, reporting to the Mayor. She has also worked as a journalist, documentary filmmaker, visual artist and experimental curator. She is now in the process of launching Experimentalista: a novel type of urban+creative studio, already working with several Mayors, cities and organizations across the world.

Basic Hope Experiment – New contract for welfare society
Experiment Workshop
Title
Basic Hope Experiment – New contract for welfare society

Welcome to a conversation and experimentation workshops to imagine what would be the new contract and universal basic insurance for a better life. At this point my company (www.hanskismaskinservice.com) is taking the imagination forward and the project code name is Universal Basic Hope.

Welcome on Thursday to have a conversation about the just-cause and on Friday 18th at 11am EEST (9am GMT) to co-create an experimentation.

The UBH (Universal Basic Hope) is about creating a service and platform where we all can make better choices regarding our life and realize the impact of our choices in the feeling of relevance and meaning. The scope of the idea is to respond to too small worriers early enough, create glimpses of hope and provide practical solutions to improve life. I am challenging the fundamentals of welfare society. My argument is that the current system is siloed and focused to solve everyday problems too late. The other objective is to remove or make fast, easy but dangerous solutions to worries obsolete. With this I mean especially quick loan providers with greedy interest programs.

The UBH is not yet out there. Collaborating with the Untitled Festival and with you is in key role on my journey to make real life experiments first in Finland and then later in the EU. At this point the service concept prototype is being developed and we are starting customer validations this fall. So far we have done extensive research about the current macro-level social welfare system and also investigated together with Demos Helsinki about the everyday worries that we finns have today.

My goal is to imagine a new contract for the social security and welfare system; find a solution that is adaptive to personal life situations, empowering not shameful, compassionate not dangerous and understanding the true nature of everyday life.

Developing the evolution of social welfare systems like in Finland is a daunting task. In fact the system I have a privilege to live in is close to perfect. I am sure that every system has room to improve even the one from the happiest country in the world. I invite everyone to imagine how we can create a engaging, motivating, uplifting and ethically sound system that we can provide not only in Finland but for the rest of the world.

Beyond The Blockchain Hype: 4 Experiments On Public Sector Transformation Through Distributed Technology
Experiment Workshop

Fit for purpose tools for a government of the 20th century do not provide the solutions we need today. Public governance must increase their capabilities to not only strengthen trust and legitimacy, but deliver on tackling the Wicked problems of today. Can distributed Ledger technologies such as blockchain offer more than just the hype and be a part of the solution?

In the workshop we will co-create and explore together desirable Futures of the use of distributed Ledger technology in the public sector. We start off from four concrete use cases being developed within the TOKEN project and use them as catapults for collective Imagination of a world where technology builds trust, transparency and legitimacy.

The four use cases:

1) Public funding distribution in the EU

2) Incorporating blockchain into active Smart Cities projects in Central Macedonia: Municipality of Katerini

3) Re-Imaging urban logistics: Assessing the specific value of distributed Ledger technologies, DLTs for urban mobility

4) Re-Imaging data valorisation services: Improving citizens’ lives whilst also increasing urban services efficiency and Exploring new economic models based on data valorization.

Launched in January 2020, TOKEN (Transformative Impact Of BlocKchain technologies in Public Services) is an EU funded project whose ultimate goal is to develop an experimental Ecosystem to enable the adoption of Distributed Ledger Technology and to test its value, via highly replicable Use Cases, as a driver for the Transformation of public services. TOKEN has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Grant Agreement No. 825268

Building Infrastructure that Transforms Democracy
Experiment Workshop

We have to reimagine the democratic process by breaking out of the traditional governmental pattern of “decide, do, defend”. In an age of personalization, people feel left behind by government – decisions are remote and inflexible, and they cannot easily make real changes in their communities and societies.

The conversation on Day 1 tackle the long-term vision in preperation for Day 2, where we will think about what the first year of that transformation looks like. What can we do in the present, within a year? What are some practical ways to put down the first brick of the new government model depicted?

A Kinship Photo is a moment of contemplation. It is an exploration of the physical and virtual spaces through a collaborative photogram. The Kinship procedure creates shadowlike images that turn the power structures of photographing upside down, and broaden the meaning of friendship.

Kinship photo is made for a festival participants who are tired of conference calls and seek for a way to connect.
With this piece two people meet: one of them online and the other onsite at the festival premises or in a nearby location. With the help of gentle instructions and a material envelope they explore the physical space of their close surroundings. The aim is to find elements, places, or ways of being that both participants feel kin of. When a mutual agreement has taken place, the two people with the chosen kinships get exposed onto a light sensitive paper. During the procedure, all parties have to stay still and focused. It is an opportunity to breath deep and contemplate on the closeness and distance between themselves and other beings. When the exposure is done, the picture on a light sensitive paper remains as a memory of that shared moment.

With this simple gesture we believe it’s possible to create and explore new spaces and places that are not only virtual or physical, but genuinely both. They are experienced, shared moments facilitated by light within communication technologies, and marked by light being trapped on photographic paper.

“Imagine radically transparent and traceable government
Hosts
Token – Transformative Impact of Blockchain Technologies in Public Services – is an EU funded project whose ultimate goal is to develop an experimental ecosystem to enable the adoption of Distributed Ledger Technology and to prove its value

Imagine a society where government operations are totally transparent and processes traceable. Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), such as blockchain, is scaling upwards in public administration and is claimed to offer new radical possibilities to increase transparency and efficiency, while decreasing bureaucracy in public operations.

Will we have the ability to identify and monitor all the information and events associated with public policies? How would it affect people, governments and civil servants or institutional trust in the societies? During the conversation we will explore the possibilities, challenges and risks of transparency and traceability in public governance.

The impact of transparency is tested through four experiments run by the TOKEN project, where public organisations are implementing DLT-based solutions in their services such as public grant distribution, mobility, smart city services and public procurement.

The Trampery and EIT Climate-KIC invite you to join us and reimagine a radical new curriculum for the world’s entrepreneurs.
As part of the Untitled initiative we are setting out to deliver a 12 month experiment called “Evo Untitled”. Our ambition is to pilot a completely reimagined accelerator programme, focused on social and environmental impact alongside profit, for 100 entrepreneurs in 5 locations around the world.
The seed for Evo Untitled is being sown by The Trampery and Climate KIC, by the intention is to take it forward with a larger group of Untitled partners. Partners will be involved at every stage of the process: design, development and delivery of expert workshops.
Crucially, the experiment will test the hypothesis that a large proportion of mainstream entrepreneurs will choose to establish a purpose-driven business if this option is included in their learning.
Join us for the workshop! The 90 minute workshop will be fast paced and highly participative, facilitated by Tom Farrand. It will cover the following topics amongst others:

Ancient wisdom as a way to reimagine the future
Conversation

The story of the Evolution of Man involves a forever-forward march towards progress, which inherently implies the abandonment of a less-enlightened past. We are made to believe that the only way is the one forward, and that those who cling to traditions are less-evolved: developing, still in progress, in need of guidance and aid. In this story all other ways of knowing, being, and thinking are marginalized and disregarded as irrelevant and as having nothing to offer to modern, industrialized societies walking through the path forward.

On the other hand we see how colonization, limitless growth, and industrialization have wreaked havoc on our planet and our societies. Instead of a utopia, we are experiencing an increase in natural disasters, violence and political unrest, loneliness and depression. We need another way ahead, one that is open to exploring alternative ways of knowing, being, and thinking.

Undoubtedly, innovative ways of addressing these global problems are needed. But perhaps insights may also be gained by looking at our abandoned past. What can we learn from civilizations that respect and lived in symbiosis with nature? What can be replicated of a world without borders, which witnessed a free and fair exchange of resources, ideas, and people? How might we recenter our cities and societies around that which is held sacred, as ancient people did, rather than on profit, progress, and consumption? What does it mean to be a human who carries the wisdom of millennia, rather than one who is constantly re-inventing anew? These are ideas we will discuss and explore together in order to arrive at more concrete ideas about how ancient wisdom can inform our visions for the future.

Hajira Qazi is a PhD Researcher in Transition Design at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA. Her research is centered on how conceptions of the Sacred can inform an alternative worldview that moves away from the consumeristic aspects traditionally associated with design towards design that Fosters resilient and Cohesive societies. Past work and research interests include participatory design, decolonization, and design for political change.

Power of Paradoxes: Experimenting With Fixed & Fluid
Art and Imagination

In this workshop we will explore the Tricky reality of fluidity and complexity: it’s easily said that life is an ongoing flow of events that are interconnected with one another. But how to live life in such a way that does this justice? Reason for this exploration is the Assumption that a main cause for unsustainable issues is that people focus on solidifying – ranging from social exclusion to tax schemes that benefit wealthy people and disadvantage poor people to Disastrous wrecking of the world for ’resources’ that we claim we need for a ’prosperous; life. There are alternative images to this notion.

We start this workshop by getting to know each other, followed by a concise presentation. Next, we will split up into smaller groups to explore the question of what would you like to have or keep fixed and what flexible / fluid? What would this look / sound / smell like? After a plenary harvest we split again this time diving into the question what this would mean for you and your behavior and for needed changes in context. By the end of this workshop we will have explored a possible new fix-fluid state

Culture as a dimension of long-term environmental policy
Conversation

One fundamental axis of debate in the conservation movement and in the formulation of environmental policy originates in the framing of the relationship between ‘nature ’ and ‘culture ’. Should we conceive of ’culture’ as (epistemologically and ontologically) distinct from nature, or should we reject this dichotomy, Integrating or reconciling the ’natural’ and the ’cultural’? Despite its apparently abstract character, this question plays a critical role for designing and mobilizing environmental policy because the answer shapes how humans are understood and engaged with to explain and respond to environmental challenges. And if it makes sense to recognize that there are elements of ’culture’ (or ’cultures’?) That are more compatible or consistent with Sustainability and regeneration than others, how should this be translated into policy approaches across sectors, both globally and locally? Participants will be invited to share their views on this debate on the basis of their own experiences, and to discuss its impact by grounding it on particular fields of action.

Javier is a public and social entrepreneur. He currently serves as the Environmental Culture Lead at the Directorate of Citizen Culture at the Secretariat of Culture of Bogotá. He recently worked as director of the Colombian Public Innovation Team (EiP-DNP), and as cofounder of Círcula, a social enterprise that creates more engaging and consistent ways to deal responsibly with the challenge of trash. In 2018, he was recognized in apolitical’s global “100 Future Leaders” list.

Uncommodity fetish
Conversation

In the time of Planetary and Cognitive capitalism, the total, Extractive logics of the market seek to expand and tap into every potential, transaction, aspect and material of our world and bodies – and also our time. No habitable positions remain “outside” the terrain of profit.To Survive, we all develop defenses against it, and adjust the set of compromises made when inhabiting it.

How do we live ”within and against” commodified time? What time is love?

Dreamseeds – Feel into the future through creative expression
Art and Imagination

What is the role that art, creativity and contemplation can play in helping us turn our inspiration & joy, as well as our frustration & pain into choices for the future which are aligned with our highest values ​​and ethics? How can we use our whole body and being as an antenna of deep listening to feel into these thresholds and play with them? And finally, how can we learn to explore the liminal spaces of our consciousness with curiosity and openness in order to allow the future to emerge organically from the mists of time?

In this workshop we will use a combination of reflective, meditative and creative techniques to feel into these questions and tap into the subtle Dreamscapes of our subconscious in order to create a “Dreamseed” drawing. This piece of art will hold within it the potent Intentions and answers explored through a number of exercises designed to awaken more of our inspiration, Imagination and intuition.

I invite you to gently step into your mytho-Poetic Dreamscapes and discover the wisdom and beauty waiting to be seen, heard and expressed as we collectively explore more creative solutions to the most pressing problems.

* Please have a piece of paper and drawing materials handy for the workshop (a pen or pencil is enough) If you want to bring color pencils and pastels please do. No previous experience with mediation or art is required to attend, everything has been designed to be accessible to all. *

Title
Data Union Fork – Tools For Data Strike (UK)

Today’s Internet is becoming increasingly centralized, slowing innovation and challenging its potential to revolutionize society and the economy in a pluralistic continent. DECODE is a project in which practical alternatives will be developed for managing online identity, personal and other data and collective governance in a citizen-friendly and privacy-aware fashion. Larisa’s work ’Data Union Fork: Tools for Data Strike’, realized in Collaboration with the DECODE project asks what it means to strike in the digital domain and how citizens can mobilize and organize for collective action. The Fork encourages audience reflection on critical issues arising from persistent personal data harvesting, digital surveillance and profiling.It also engages the participants to think how collective action could help regain control and redefine the value of data collected whilst promoting solidarity and mutual aid. During the workshop, participants are invited to explore collective bargaining in the Labor union tradition through ’word & image example mapping’, a subverted software design methodology, and investigate what is a breach, how to communicate alert, mobilize and organize citizens locally and across Neighborhoods. Larisa’s work is part of a Collaboration between S + T + ARTS (Science, Technology & the Arts), an European Commission initiative launched under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and Untitled. STARTS’s purpose is to support Collaborations between artists, Scientists, engineers and researchers to develop more creative, inclusive, and sustainable technologies.

Reimagine the Body
Conversation

The recently formed Bodytalk research team Simo Vassinen, Maria F. Scaroni, and Roope Mokka, investigates the crossing points and possible new unions of futures research with dance and physicality – with a specific zoom into rave and club culture. The team’s underlining idea is that the repetitive physical release conducted alone to monotonous, high tempo music in a shared space that we know from raves and clubs can offer new perspectives and mindshifts for digesting societal realities and imagining better futures also in other contexts.

Dissolving the ego, one dance at a time, alone together.

The shared educational-professional-hobby-activist background of the Helsinki/Berlin-based Bodytalk team combines e.g. futures research, contemporary dance, performance, co-creation, methods of participation and empowerment, workshop moderation, techno music and club culture, journalism, event management and political philosophy. Simo Vassinen (DE/FI) has a combined background of futures research, journalism, translation, dance, performance and choreography. Maria F. Scaroni (DE/IT) is a dance artist, initiator and teacher of experimental dance and physical practices, and space-holder for raving, bodywork and community caregiving. Roope Mokka (FI) is one of the founders of Demos Helsinki, futures researcher and urbanist with a parallel storyline in underground culture and community-driven artistic projects. The three members also share a long-lasting affair with dancing and club culture.

Bodytalk is supported by The Finnish Cultural and Academic Institutes’ Together Alone project. #togetheralonefi #instituutit

The Politics of Being Part 2
Conversation

Any social or political envisioning is constrained by an invisible frame: by the implicit values and views on which it is created, most importantly its view of the nature of human beings.

A big vision begins with a vision for the “Being” of human beings. We need to go back to basics if we are to rediscover our imagination and create possibility for ourselves and our societies. Any social or political envisioning is constrained by an invisible frame: by the implicit values and views on which it is created, most importantly its view of the nature of human beings. For example, much of modern economic and political thought rests on the assumption that you or I know what we want (think markets, democracy etc). However, most wisdom traditions teach us that discovering what we want is actually very hard and takes deep practice and reflection.

In this session, participants will enquire into the nature of “Being” for human beings and how this would translate into a big vision for humanity and a new framework for progress. A mixture of play, embodiment and reason will be used in this workshop like session.

The session is led Sylvie Barbier and Rufus Pollock, the co-founders of Life Itself. Sylvie Barbier is a performance artist, entrepreneur and educator who loves to create powerful embodied experiences. Her life ambition is to become a witch! Rufus Pollock is a researcher, technologist and entrepreneur. He has been a pioneer in the global Open Data movement. He is the founder of Open Knowledge. Formerly, he was Shuttleworth Fellow and Mead Fellow in Economics at Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge and is currently an Ashoka Fellow and Fellow of the RSA. (Bio source: Life Itself)

Trees as infrastructure deep dive
Experiment Workshop

Within cities, trees and humans are enmeshed in a rich network of agencies and dependencies sharing intimate relations and mutual obligations towards preserving a common, liveable place. Recognizing urban trees beyond their aesthetic presence and treating them as city co-inhabitants might offer a better way to attend to our relations and establish a tangled web of links to support living processes. Urban trees can be companions, communities, providers, expert witnesses, economies, data stories or resourceful ancestors.

Using the lens of Trees as Infrastructure, we will imagine and identify the most controversial topics. For example – what happens when this topic becomes (inevitably) political? What happens if the media use it as a ’greenwashed feel good piece’ without thoroughly discussing the full breadth of the story? How does this apply to marginalized communities?

In the workshops, participants will develop, refine, demonstrate, prototype, and launch or initiate transformative experiments. All participants are welcome. Leaders from city and regional governments will also be in attendance, alongside artists, business and other thought leaders. As the Deep Dive session on Day 2 will build on context from Day 1, either of the sessions on Thursday are a pre-requisite for Friday’s session.

EIT Climate-KIC is the EU’s climate innovation agency, working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon and resilient world by enabling systems transformation.

The Transcultural Republic of Nodes
Experiment Workshop
Title
The Transcultural Republic Of Nodes

Ecological collapse accelerates as technology advances. To face both, we’ll need a community, or better than that: a network of independent communities or ’Nodes’. This experiment workshop will explore how such nodes can share a constitution, collaborate online, and make a Universal Basic Income (UBI) for every member. The nation state as an organizing system is broken. Corporations like Facebook are attuned to the accelerating speed of communication and globalization, but they are profit-driven. Let us reimagine a decentralized self-governing system, based in the real world as much as in the blockchain, that is robust in the face of crisis, innovative through cc-license knowledge sharing and life-friendly by design.

To get started we need Ideas, knowledge, inspiration! What would a Constitution for the 2020s look like? How do we set up a self-financed UBI? How can we harness the power of Blockchain/Aragon? How can we create a new social code that proclaims not freedom from harm, but rather the freedom to self actualize? Imagine an international network of physical open spaces – Nodes – that are based on: shared values, self-financed UBI and an internal, privacy-conscious social network. Its goals would be:

Cohabiting peacefully / adverting crisis Creating spaces to navigate and inspire change Providing mutual support Using advancing technologies in communications, production, agriculture and energy

Raphael Thelen lives and works on the fault lines of our global society, where our conflicts and aspirations are thrown into their sharpest relief, where the boundaries between personal and political blurr. He experienced the 2011 Liberation struggle of the people in the Middle East, accompanied by Refugees crossing the Balkans, wrote about the crumbling Dreams of today’s Eastern Germany. His writing has appeared in all major German Magazines. Currently he is finishing his second book. He writes not only as a Spectator, but as someone who hopes to change the conditions he finds.

Theresa Leisgang lives her life on the fine line where local practices and global structures meet. She explores the connections between transculturality and climate crisis, between agriculture and biodiversity-loss, between indiginous knowledge and imperialism.Whether she researches how oil companies exploit the people of the Amazon, works on board of civil rescue ships in the Mediterranean or develops PR strategies for public figures like Carola Rackete – to her all these Missions are sides of the same quest: a good life for all on our shared planet.

Raphael and Theresa are collaborating on a project called Pulse Of The Earth. They have traveled through Southern Africa, Europe and towards the Arctic Circle to examine how communities deal with the impact of the climate crisis. During their meetings with social-entrepreneurs, feminists, psychonauts, shamans, thinkers, politicians and activists, while living in community houses, squatted forests and on spiritual gatherings, they learnt one thing time and again: community is not only making us more resilient, it is also the solution to many of our most problems.

Hosts
Kasia Molga in Collaboration with the musician Scanner. Kasia Molga is a designer, artist, creative technologist and environmentalist in heart. She calls herself a “design fusionist”. Scanner (British artist Robin Rimbaud) traverses the experimental terrain between sound and space connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres.

Kasia Molga will present her work “By the Code of Soil” done in Collaboration with the musician Scanner . The work was developed within S + T + ARTS Vertigo Residencies and took place alongside the Grow Observatory , a citizens’ Observatory that has empowered people and whole communities to take action on soils and climate across Europe.

The session includes a screening of the work By the Code of Soil followed by a discussion of the project by artists and guests. The work mixes various dynamic data from soil sensors, combined with more Static data on soil texture and season, into a system of visual noise.

“By the Code of Soil is about handing over power to the land – to soil – and depicting it as a first and foremost living organism; not as a resource whose capacity must be maximized for our own benefits. Soil with all its Myriad of processes happening there all the time is like a matrix of the computer – an Invisible force and organizational structure binding all components of the Biosphere together. In times of uncertainties and transitions we need to pay attention to what is Invisible, possibly more than to what is in front of us. ” – Kasia Molga.

Kasia Molga is a designer, artist, creative technologist and environmentalist in heart. She calls herself a “design fusionist”. She reimagines our relationship with nature, while questioning our technologically mediated perception of the environment – and the technology itself. Kasia’s work is part of a Collaboration between S + T + ARTS (Science, Technology & the Arts), an initiative of the European Commission launched under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and Untitled.
