Republic of Learning 9: Creating a Reciprocal System
Updated: Mar 4
Our next Republic of Learning event will be on Wednesday February 2nd at 6pm London time. We will be hosting it online – using zoom.us. Facilitators: Dr Rachel Jacobs (artist, researcher) and Giles Lane (artist, researcher).
A workshop combining craft making, scientific data, intimacy, observation and stories to bring people together to imagine a human-made reciprocal and sustainable system that connects us back to the Earth's own dynamic system (hydrosphere, geosphere, atmosphere, biosphere).
All Welcome, please book a free place via Eventbrite
Theme : Creating A Reciprocal System
AI, robots, driverless cars – machines that enable us to have “frictionless" lives and “satisfy" our every needs and dreams... What would a system look like that relies on reciprocity, sharing and gifting rather than ease, desire and consumption?
What is a reciprocal system?
This workshop will combine artistic and craft-based making to explore what a system of resilience, co-operation, re-enchantment and intimacy might be. It will bring together learning from previous sessions and work with the Earth's planetary system (Atmosphere, Geosphere, Hydrosphere and Biosphere) to create a model for this new reciprocal system.
Materials that will help you make your reciprocal system:
paper and/or card, pens, pencils, scissors
any other craft or art materials you might have to hand (fabrics, string, newspaper, plasticine, paints etc…)
The workshop is free and will take place online on Zoom.
