Narratopias - Agora Session 3

About this event

Narratopias’ “Agora” is the place for discussing, confronting, connecting, and continuing transformative narratives, testing new forms of collective dialog or projection.

The initial “Agora” cycle will take the form of four meetings between May and July, 2021. Its goal is to explore the reasons why new or alternative narratives are felt to be necessary, and the conditions under which they can actually make meaningful change more possible.

Why do we need to talk about new narratives?

Each session will discuss narratives under the multiple and complexe ways to look at one. Two participants are in charge of kickstarting the discussion and a written synthesis will be produced after each meeting, to serve as a foundation for future actions and projects.

______

When people call for “new/alternative narratives”, there is an assumption that these narratives have the power to make meaningful change more possible. Yet narratives can also be viewed as a way to escape reality, to avoid concrete action, or even to “spin” current reality in order to make it more palatable. Also, narratives seldom provide a clear, unambiguous path towards concrete action. So, what do alternative narratives have to do with action? Are there conditions under which narratives can make change easier, or harder?
