[Yasmin_discussions] Human Ecosystems: De Certeau, Clèment, Casagrande and the Cultural Ecosystem of Rome

Dear *,

I would like to introduce to all of you one of our latest projects, which
is called Human Ecosystems.

Here you can find a summary of the theoretical approach which forms the
base of the project:

>From our point of view, it is an interesting chance to explore possible
forms of collaboration between arts and sciences, with artists defining
their role as social sensors; as creators of forms of representation; and
as creators of the dynamics for participation to the processes which bring
to transformation, pushing the boundaries of what is perceived as
"possible", in a pluralistic definition of the "future", which becomes a
collaborative, conversational performance.

This project has recently led to the formalization (and, soon, to the
creation) of the first Office for the Human Ecosystem in the city of Rome,
supported by the public City Administration.

It is an on-going process: we would love to know your thoughts about it.

All the best,
