Artistic Session: Visualising our Values
by Ashley Erdman
A hands on workshop exploring the power of visual communication to shape social norms and values. What role does it play in upholding the current growth obsessed economic model and how can the degrowth movement harness this potential to help people envision new possibilities for how we live our lives. In addition to discussion participants will have the opportunity to gather images they feel reflect the values of our growth focussed economy and to create images they feel reflect the values of the degrowth movement.
For degrowth to succeed it must do more than win the intellectual arguments and convince policy makers. We need to find narratives and strategies capable of breaking into broader sections of society and shifting cultural values and norms.
