MAXXI March 2017

In March 2017, a group of participants from around the Middle East will gather and work together for the first time. The MAXXI Museum in Rome will provide an extra-territorial space, enabling them to dialogue and perform collaborative creative processes over the course of one week. The participants will form five transdisciplinary groups, each focusing on generating alternative near-future scenarios and design proposals to address challenges relevant to the Middle East, such as borders, religious diversity, migration, water and food sources, information transfer and cultural exchanges. The objective of the workshop is to restore the conditions that allow civil imagination to thrive, by creating a framework in which one can imagine diverse and yet-to-come forms of governance, coexistence, ownership and alliances.
