Pernilla Glaser:
Network Training: Playing With Risk

In this pop up-workshop you will speed-develop your fitness for bold initiatives, outbursts of ideas and anti-normative interactions. We will explore how risk taking can work as helpful and productive tool for dynamic interaction. You will walk away with a goodie bag of highly addictive risk-taking invitations to be used as you see fit.

Network Circuit Training

Network Circuit Training is an Alibis for Interaction classic.

Participants are divided into three groups who each experience all three micro sessions on the craft of human interaction. At each station we learn a new skill and think about the design principles behind it. By the end of the circuit we have also gotten to know quite a few of the other participants!

Like everything else at Alibis, the social networking circuit is entirely voluntary. You can choose at any time just to leave or to not participate in the exercises. At Alibis, no one will ever force you to play. But we recommend physically going to these sessions and only deciding there whether to participate – because they tend to be fun, moving and/or really interesting!

About The Academy of Risk

The Academy of Risk is an initiative with the purpose of prototyping risk-taking for leaps in social transformation. It focuses on risk-taking in collaborative innovation practices, and is constituted of professionals based in education and research institutions in the field of art, design and sustainability.

The purpose of Academy of Risk is to facilitate the generation, exchange, and dissemination of knowledge about, and agency towards risk-taking as a method for leaps in social transformation.

The Academy of Risk aims to develop and spread such knowledge through workshops and pop up-laboratories, as well as publications and an on-line resource. In all activities it strives for transparency, accessibility and inclusive sharing with a large transdisciplinary community in academia, business and civil society.
