Energization Survey

ABOUT ME

My name is Maddalena and I am a Ph.D. student of Iuav University of Venice (Italy).  I am an industrial and interaction designer with a passion for theatre and this is why I started my research. If you are interested in knowing more information about me: www.maddalenadesign.it

Energization is a project I started last year to investigate how perceptions and imagery about energy is going to change  in the context of performing arts and, above all, buildings for theatre. At the moment, I am inviting people to join the debate and I am collecting information.

FIRST STEP: THEATRE WORKERS QUESTIONNAIRE

To start knowing more about you I would like to kindly invite you to answer an on-line questionnaire. You can decide to answer anonymously or you can insert your name, as you prefer.  THEATRE WORKERS questionnaire covers different specific areas so, if you don’t know some information  because it is not prerogative of your profession, really don’t worry  (it is not an exam and most of time  people don’t know some information I am requesting), simply skip and go to next question.

DATA COLLECTION

The data I am collecting are going to be used only for study purposes related to my research.  The results of the whole questionnaire will be reported as aggregated data in my Ph.D. thesis  or other form of scientific documentations (such as for example Energization’s website: www.maddalenadesign.it/ energization) For any suggestion, thought and reflection or question, or if you are interested in receiving a copy of the results of this study (when ready), feel free to contact me at maddalena@maddalenadesign.it

SurVivArt – Arts for the Right to a Good Life

This post comes to you from Cultura21

The Heinrich Böll Stiftung has started yet another interesting project referring to arts and sustainability. Artists from six mainly southern countries are invited to discuss the meaning of the right to a good life. Based on the fact that our daily lives and our ways of achieving a “good life” always influence the environment in a more or less negative or positive way, these artists ask themselves a simple question: Can “we find ways of living that contribute to more social equality and justice and that improve community participation and involvement?”

SurVivArt is meant to be a bridge to get to know perspectives on this question from people from the global South. On the website www.survivart.org you find an overview and detailed descriptions of these highly interesting projects, e.g. a social theater in Lagos, which is exploring the impact of climate change on daily life..

Schumacher College – Confluence of Cultures: Understanding the Past, Enriching the Future

May 9 – 13, 2011

A short course at Schumacher College

Teachers: Vandana Shiva, Mark Tully, Krishna Dutta, William Radice, Satish Kumar

The creative and artistic influence of Tagore is keenly felt by artists today, as it was last century. He was a legendary Indian poet, spiritual teacher, artist, social activist and writer. The cross fertilisation between Indian and Western philosophy and culture has contributed hugely to experimentation in holistic rural living. This course will explore the ideas and experiences of Tagore and his direct influence on Dartington, the home of Schumacher College.

The teachers on this course will address different aspects of Tagore’s rich and diverse legacy. The group will reflect on relevance of Tagore’s ideas today, in a time when it is more vital than ever that we learn to live harmoniously with nature and each other.

How can East and West learn from and enrich each other, whilst maintaining their own cultural identity?

How much do our societies need to change to adapt to different circumstances and how much should we look to ancient wisdom and practices for guidance?

For further information about the course, teachers and fees please see our website www.schumachercollege.org.uk
