Segue 2017: The Culture of Participation

How do you get the mood right for collective decision making?  What can politics of the future learn from event design, service design, theatre, architecture, and psychology?

Join The People Speak’s co-founder Mikey Weinkove, artist-in-residence for Segue 2017, as he investigates our collective imagination and explores the ways we can use performance and live arts to inspire and support all people perform our current discussions, debates, proposals in a way that is open and inviting. Politics seems to be one of the few areas of performance that has not accepted the dogma that all human interaction is performance.

Mikey will talk about creating an ambience in which people feel safe, are confident to speak and trust the outcome. He’ll also examine ways to rediscover democratic process’s remit to engage, to make bureaucratic and political processes inviting and compelling even! And share projects designed to help anyone who wants to start a conversation in a neighbourhood or an organisation, at a festival or at a product launch – basically anywhere there are people and something to talk about!
