Course objectives (in Czech)
Workshop will focus on the role of the university in social context and possible fields of its social engagements. We will look at the idea of the university and its resources - those that are often reserved for the academic community, and which could be used to empower local communities, city dwellers, selected social groups. The aim of the workshop will be to reflect on how university can be involved in public participation using tools and methods of cultural animation and how experts can be facilitators of social changes, and not just system collaborators. We will practice civic participation by reflect on theory, but primarily by creating the laboratory of forms and methods for sharing knowledge and strenghtening communities - using the example of Josefov. We are going to learn the process of involving communities and about the ways and techniques how this could be initiatied in a practical setting. The title of the workshop is taken from the book published in 2004 (ed. Glenn Buglass, Mark Webster) about role of art and creativity in social change. We would like to extend this reflection to the field of universities’ social engagement by developing own projects concerning public space of Josefov and drafting public participation model for local community of Josefov.
