Multiple (hi)stories, multiple futures – 2 Oct 2022

On October 2nd, Philippine Hoegen, Julia Reist and Miriam Hempel hosted a workshop as a part of Ecopolis 2022, Multiple (hi)stories, multiple futures in Brussels.

About their workshop
Departing from What is Work?arrow (a series of collaborations and interviews in which we exchanged with many voices – with different ‘jobs’ and diverse administrative statuses and capabilities – about ‘work’ and what we desire from it). Together with participants of this workshop, we mapped views on, and experiences in, work and we speculated on how we want to work (together) in the future.

About Ecopolis 2022
Social, ecological and economic crises force us to think about a radically different way of living. Can unheard stories help us with that? Stories that link generations, geographical areas or ancient knowledge and technology. And can activism as a form of love take u-s beyond doom and gloom?

Ecopolis brings stories that depict an inclusive and sustainable future for this new world, with artists, thinkers and doers breaking open our frameworks.

‘Performance is about engaging with versions of the self, stretching the gaze to see what others see when they look at you.’
