Narratopias - Agora Session 2

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.

______

History, they say, is written by the victors. But when the dominant narratives (of progress, of markets, of Western-style democracy, etc.) appear exhausted, other narratives and other narrators appear - or just become visible again. We will be reflecting on the value of plurality in narratives. How important is the diversity of narratives, and of those who produce them or engage with them? How can this diversity be increased? What possibilities, and perhaps difficulties, does this plurality generate? Can there be too many narratives?

The initiators of this session are:

Petra Ardai is theatre-maker, moderator, lecturer and writer. She is the artistic director of the Amsterdam and Budapest based art collective SPACE.

Possible Futures Collective, is an endeavor that aims to make visible the South’s stories and narratives of a history of colonisation and oppression, and formulate regenerative narratives relevant to in the South’s complex, diverse contexts and cultures.
