Event description

Description

As a part of the L.A.S.T. Festival and the Paseo Prototyping Festival, Shoptalk: Field Tools for Peace calls to the festival participants and the local community of San Jose, to bring and make items, artifacts, and tools that activate actions for Peace. This workshop explores methods for community problem solving including the creative acts of listening, shared narratives, object making, and collective/shared visioning of possible futures. The workshop looks beyond solo authorship towards collaborative making, including: identifying new objects and methods for peace and protest; engaging digital communities for new forms of participation; creating practices of identity and obfuscation in precarious situations; and creatively exploring practical and theoretical relationships with peace.

Workshop leaders will start with short presentations about community arts practices and case study overviews. Workshop participants will then have the opportunity to introduce themselves, tell their personal and/or community stories, then brainstorm topics and mediums to prototype projects through collaborative problem solving and rapid prototyping methods.
