Rejoins le Labofii à Nantes du 17 au 19 avril pour co-créer une nouvelle forme d’action de désobéissance, dans les rues et le cyberspace

10301287_10153767221349358_3896830089616749696_nTu as envie de participer à ce qui pourrait être l’action de désobéissance de masse la plus innovante qui soit contre le chaos climatique? La frontière entre le réel et le virtuel te fascine? Tu es artiste, activiste, designer, joueur, hacker, et tu adores les projets collaboratifs? Rejoins nous au Lieu Unique du 17 au 19 avril!

Pendant les mois menant aux mobilisations lors du Sommet COP21 de l’ONU sur le changement climatique à Paris en décembre 2015, le Laboratoire d’Imagination Insurrectionnelle (labofii) organise une série d’événements pour créer une nouvelle forme d’action de désobéissance: les Climate Games.

Ce cadre d’actions de masse transmedia vise à fusionner la rue, les corps et le cyberspace, et va transformer la ville en un champ de résistance totale, ouvert à tou-te-s. Pendant les Climates Games, des équipes vont tenter de réussir des missions qui leur permettront de marquer des points en agissant aux racines du changement climatique, à Paris ou au delà. Ces actions non vionlentes et créatives, qui pourront aller du blocage des lobbyistes qui sabotent les négociations à l’ONU jusqu’à des interventions théâtrales, la fermeture de mine de charbon ou des actions en ligne, prendront place sans coordination centralisée, mais les équipes pourront utiliser une application de smart phone pour reporter leurs succès en temps réel.

Pendant toute l’année 2015, les Climate Games seront développés grâce à une série de hackathons et d’ateliers pendant lesquels les participants travaillleront collectivement à l’élaboration de tous les aspects des Climate Games: développement de la platforme interne-smart phone app, règles du jeu, récit, création des missions, etc. Ainsi nous explorerons ensemble la frontière entre l’espace public et le cyberspace, le réel et le virtuel, le monde du jeu et celui de l’activisme.

Nous vous invitons à nous rejoindre de vendredi 17 avril à 18h jusqu’à dimanche 19 april 18h, pour un week end d’intense collaboration ludique et créative afin de poursuivre l’élaboration des Climate Games. Ce week end sera en effet la suite d’un hackathon d’une semaine en Belgique en mars, ainsi que d’une résidence du Labofii au LU dans le cadre du projet 0.CAMP organisé par PiNG. Il incluera également des présentations d’autres artistes participant à 0.CAMP.

La participation à ce week end est gratuite, mais les places sont limitées. Merci de vous inscrire en remplissant ce formulaire avec le 1er avril (réponses envoyées le 5 avril). Il est important de pouvoir participer à la totalité du week end.

Samedi 28 février et dimanche 1er mars 2015, à Paris.

Vous avez envie de (vous) mobiliser pour lutter contre les causes du chaos climatique ?

Rejoignez-nous pour un atelier de deux jours, lors duquel nous invitons artistes et activistes à venir explorer ensemble les synergies émergeant de la fusion entre art et activisme pour élaborer ensemble de nouvelles formes de résistance créative.

Organisé à l’occasion de la sortie du livre Joyeux Bordel – Tactiques, principes et théories pour faire la révolution, cette formation examinera un éventail d’approches, du canular au démantèlement stratégique, du théâtre invisible au travail médiatique, pour aboutir à un design collectif d’une action pour la justice climatique.

Organisé conjointement par 350.org, les Jeunes Amis de la Terre, Attac, Les Liens qui Libèrent et le Laboratoire d’Imagination Insurrectionnelle (Labofii) [1], le week-end sera animé par John Jordan et Isabelle Fremeaux du Labofii, avec la participation d’Andrew Boyd, co-auteur de Beautiful Trouble , la version originale du livre.
Cet atelier trouvera des applications concrètes dans le cadre de la campagne « Mettons les combustibles fossiles à la retraite » de 350.org , de la publication du guide éco-citoyen « Climat : comment choisir ma banque ? » des Amis de la Terre et de la seconde édition du « kit anti-requins » d’Attac.

Participate in co-designing creative resistance in the streets and cyberspace against climate chaos

Dice

Are you an artist, designer, hacker, gamer, activist, … ?
Do you want to take part in actions balanced between physical and virtual reality?
Join in on the Climate Games during the Hackathon #hackcop Ghent

In the lead up to the protests at the Paris COP21 Climate Summit (Dec 2015), The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination, GroenFront!, Climate Express and Multimedia Design KASK Ghent join forces in the creation of a new form of disobedient action: the Climate Games. The goal: transforming the city into the playing field of a mass disobedience action.

During the Climate Games teams score points by completing peaceful, creative missions that target the root causes of climate change. Taking place in the city, all participants coordinate their actions by means of an open source smartphone app.

Throughout 2015 these Climate Games will be developed during a series of Hackathons involving activists, artists, designers, hackers, gamers, scientists, architects … We are calling on anyone who wants to defeat those who play deadly games with the climate to join for a week of collaboration and creativity.

The first Hackathon takes place between the 16th and 21st of March in Vooruit, Ghent
This Hackathon plans to work primarily on the game play, rules, overall narrative and aesthetics of the Climate Games as well as the development of the smart phone app. It will be a lively workshop that shares knowledge and introduce newcomers to forms of creative resistance

Participation is free of charge, but places are limited
Transport, accommodation and meals are at participants’ expenses

Interested? Then fill in this application form before March 1st.

In collaboration with Multimedia Design KASK Ghent, Kunstencentrum Vooruit, GroenFront!, Climate Express & The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination.

Intense 3 day workshop on art and activism against Fossil Fuels by the Labofii, Brussels

8951_599_-1_FSImage_0_Global_Divestment_day

The art of creative resistance: a workshop with the Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination and Platform (tbc) – February 12th – 14th 2015 10.00 – 18.00

Faced with the urgency of the social and ecological crises it is clear that everything has to be transformed ; this includes the definitions of art and the way we struggle for a better world. For the last decade the Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination (Labofii) has been bringing artists and activists together to design and carry out new forms of creative resistance. For the festival Burning Ice, taking place at the Kaai Theatre in Brussels, the Labofii will facilitate an intense three day workshop which will co-create actions to take place with the general public on Saturday 14th of February. (see details below)

Open to artists and activists interested in the boundaries between politics and performance, art and activism, the workshop will explore how we can escape the old rituals of protest to find a space where the poetic and the pragmatic fuse into successful and efficient moments of disobedience. The workshop will be hands on, we will work together to design and then implement actions (with the participation of the public on the 14th) around the theme of climate chaos and the movement to divest from fossil fuel corporations.

The workshop is free but places for February 12th and 13th are limited. If you would like to apply please fill in the form here. The deadline for applications is Monday 19th of January

For more information, contact info (at) labofii.net
On the 13th of February at 20.30, the Labofii will present the show We Have Never Been Here Before at the Kaaitheater, Sainctelettesquare 19 – 1000 Brussels.

In 2015, St Valentines day will not be what it used to be. The Kaai will open its doors to the public and transform the theatre into a temporary climate action zone to celebrate a culture of life over the toxic culture of fossil fuels. Coinciding with the 350.org global day of action, calling on institutions to take their investments out of the fossil fuels corporations, Love Life : Hate Fossil Fuels will take us on a day long adventure of creative resistance (prepared during the workshop) together with an international array of artists and climate activists.

“The Beat of Courage; the Shape of Hope: creative resistance in the face of catastrophe” – A 2 day workshop with The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination

Image

Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 July 2014 – 10am to 6pm

Berliner Festspiele – Schaperstraße 24 – 10719 Berlin

“As a society we are caught between a sense of impending apocalypse and the fear of acknowledging it. In this ‘caught’ place our responses are blocked and confused. On one level we maintain a more or less up-beat capacity to carry on as usual… and all the while, underneath, there is this inchoate knowledge that our world could go at any moment. Unless we find ways of acknowledging and integrating that level of anguished awareness, we repress it; and with that repression we are drained of the energy we need for action.” Joanna Macy

Faced with the immensity and complexity of the catastrophic entwining of ecological, economic and social crises that threaten our entire way of life, in fact threatens life itself, we often feel paralysed. “We could do more”, our intuition nags at us, and yet something holds us back from actions commensurate with the scale of the problem.

Even Yvo de Boer, (executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 2009) recently asserted that “The only way that a 2015 agreement can achieve a two-degree goal (the ‘safe’ limit to warming) is to shut down the whole global economy.” Thus “what are we waiting for? And to do what?” will be some of the core questions that this workshop will explore.

We will delve into our fears of action, and attempt to find collective tools to overcome the feeling of disempowerment that can overcome us in these dark times.

Participants will be encouraged to share and reflect upon personal and historical stories of courage and disobedience, learn to trust each other and engage in horizontal processes of organising, as well as explore tools for effective strategies that are required in order to organise appropriate responses to the injustices of the climate catastrophe.

Working with local artists and activists and using a diversity of participatory and playful methods of popular education, it will aim to start a momentum towards collective organising and affinity group building for effective disobedience in response to the UN’s 2015 Paris Climate summit.

The workshops will be facilitated by Isabelle Fremeaux, co-founder of the Labofii, and will be in English.

In parrallel to the workshop is the show: We Have Never Been Here Before, written and performed by John Jordan, co-founder of the Labofii. Participants are encouraged to attend the performance on Friday 4 July, as is content is key for full engagement with the workshop. Free tickets are available for all selected participants.

http://www.berlinerfestspiele.de/en/aktuell/festivals/foreign_affairs/fa14_programm/fa14_programm_gesamt/fa14_veranstaltungsdetail_98532.php

The workshop is free, but places limited, bookings need to be made by June 15th (with a short letter explaining why you’d like to attend, this is to get a sense of who you are so that we can tailor the workshop to the participants). Confirmations will be sent by June 22nd. Participants will be expected to bring lunch to share with others on both days.
