Commons Convergence: crafting a collective path to artistic resilience is a workshop and event organized by documenta Institut in partnership with Casco Art Institute with the support of The Supporting Act Foundation and AFIELD. The event brings together artivist communities, funders, creative institution practitioners, policy-makers and scholars to explore a maintenance model that enables more sustainable socially-engaged art practices. The public sharing session follows a LARP game The Alchemy of Commons which allows the participants to experience making commons through collectivity. The participants will share insights from their instituent institutional practices and explore the future of an artistic-social ecosystem.
