LWCircus | Methodology
The LWCProgram will be built more using the strategies proper of an anthropological fieldworker, preferring an expeditious methodology’s style, consisting in different opportunities of field’s experiences during the year (workshops), through the organization of surveys on site to collect data useful to support the operative experience, thanks to which it will be reassumed new observations and the results acquired, to make a systematization of the methodology itself and delineating new tools and devices, useful in the goal’s reaching achievement.
The local communities and minorities interested by the LWC-Program, they will have the major role inside the experiences, and on the base of the quality of the established relationships, it will depend the final result in term of shared design process and final realizations on site. In the case of the Mayan community involved on the next operative workshop (LWCircus-MayaLab017), where the locals come from an ancient culture, sadly completely absorbed by a new global trend of an uncontrolled accumulation of resources and products waste, the LWC-Program will work to find new possibilities of a reacquiring of sense for a proper cultural rediscover, in term of sustainable recycling system’s option.
The LWCircus Program aim to acquire and develop a shared method by which, together with the communities interested from the research and relative operative workshop on site, along the time, the different kind of practitioners, students, artists, researchers participants that realized part of the planned interventions, become part of a creative community that arrives to be totally at service of the local community, becoming the group as real tools in the hands of the locals or “final users”. The “final users” in this way acquire competence, they receive and exchange a know how through the different way of interaction between all the actors involved on the research’s path.
Therefore, the LWC Program’s goal over the next years is to contribute in the training of self-sufficient communities-minorities through a different landscape design practice on site. This could be thanks to the enabling the local community to manage independently the sustainability of its rural development, rather then through the responsible use of a territory by reacquiring a compromised portion of humid land, for example, by reconquering it to a public use for a common space of equality, rather than the revaluation of exploited territories through the building of a plausible future inside Mediterranean area.
