Possibilities and obstacles in co-creative activities fostering inclusion and social exchange.
In recent years, participation and co-determination have been a top priority, especially in art and culture. Participation was often only superficially discussed, less often implemented, and thus contributed to the hardening of existing structures.
The concept of co-creation promises a higher level of co-determination by shaping the creative process in a participatory way from the very beginning. The symposium is dedicated to the potentials and possibilities of co-creative activities. What are the advantages of co-creation in terms of inclusive exchange between all participants? Can co-creation overcome the difficulties of participatory activities? To what extent are participative processes possible in art and culture and what are their limits? On the basis of the presented results of the European project BRIDGING and with the help of invited experts, topics such as participation and co-determination will be explored within the framework of moderated joint discussions and in small groups.
