“Detourning” the notion of anticipation, the interdisciplinary and international collective Prototyping Social Forms (PSF) offers a series of workshops and a curated panel on enacting alternatives to what is presently the case so as to better imagine, sketch, inhabit and reflect on other ways of living in the world that may be obscured by present narratives.

Inspired by “seed banks” developed and maintained by horticulturalists and ecologists, the PSF Process Germ Bank is an experimental infrastructure for sharing germs of research- creation practices and for developing signature methods for probing and promoting diversity within different knowledge ecologies. Hybridizing metaphors, we offer a “seed ball” of process germs to try out in the terrain of the Anticipation Conference 2022.

The “PSF: Un Altro Mondo È Possibile” stream consists 90-minute techniques workshops followed by one 90-minute curated session for reflections upon the techniques workshops and related work. Each techniques workshop will involve the “sprouting” and tending of two process germs.

10:00-11:30 | Techniques Workshop #1: “Enacting and Sensing Process”
12:30-14:00 | Techniques Workshop #2: “Enacting and Sensing Body”
14:30-16:00 | Curated Panel: “Un Altro Mondo È Possibile”
