PUF at round table_Climate Change as Social Challenge

Inability of Master Plan (based on infinite growth) to deal with the climate change asks for the socio-cultural shift and micro-urbanism strategies. Alternative infrastructures in the form of offline sharing, crowd-based finance models or low-tech energy producers, appear as a creative answer to urban uncertainties. PUF presented new forms of planning based on resources-sharing, DIY culture and self-made infrastructures, with an aim to provoke discussion about non-technocratic ways to deal with the climatic turbulence.

PUF at Lo Doy Porque Quiero (I give because I want)

November 2011, Calle9, Medellin (Colombia)

Lecture > Tiny Empowerments_Berlin case

Art interventions in the public space became important part of the urban communications. In the city of Berlin, cultural developments that contrast “creative industries” generate plenty of alternative spaces and micro-entrepreneurs with social responsibility. Beside the administrative curtain, cultural funds and patrons, those networks are establishing new labour forms empowered by information and communication technologies.

After introducing some case studies from Berlin as a sort of inspiration, together with the short movie Pequeños Empoderamientos (Tiny Empowerments), open discussion about situation in Medellin took place together with local artists and activists.

PUF at Conference Climate Change as Social Challenge

Climate change has been heavily discussed from the meteorological, political or technical perspective. However, existing social change caused by shift in environment seems to be marginalized and put at the bottom of priority list.

PUF presented unconventional ways of dealing with climate change, following grass-roots initiatives, micro-ecosystems of local communities and increasing number of artists interested in this topic.
