Framework for interdisciplinary practitioners to explore across disciplines in the space. The main aim of this work was for us to reflect on how practitioners from different community-engaged fields create meaning, and building upon this to develop insights.
How can self-organising, emergent engagements be enhanced by Participatory Theatre and Participatory Narrative Inquiry processes?
Exploring how we can work with performance as research, embodied topographies in InFusion Space. Operationalising full SDT process, and projects where the essential elements are explored in iterative inquiry to enable transformative change and development.
1 Grounding a theme to a particular system level, and invite those engaged in that social topography to calibrate theme to their context. (Collect principles and criteria at play for engaging theme at this system level)
2 Creating a physical bridging space where themes can be explored around key emergent hot spots, and areas of interest chosen. (narratives are shared in relation to bridging space – represented by a fabric map)
3 Share stories, and make the space come alive. Using contextual drama and other arts-based approaches to deepen the resonant meaning of the landscape. The stories from this are recorded and collected. (This can form a level of inquiry threads, which can resonate with other threads at the same level, or feed into a multi-level, multi-thread inquiry which aligns to more purposeful and deliberative exploration in Stage 4.
Infusion Space is a social innovation project by A.D.C.I.D (Aiding Dramatic Change in Development) that explore social initatives and transdisciplinary projects relational to local contexts.
