CULTURAL SPEEDY NETWORK
The intervention aim is to get insight of organizers and trainers of CIN forum whose impressions and insights about CIN are not available or visible.
Method and technique
– The intervention uses the same methodology the trainers/facilitators are using with the participants in the workshops; using the method of reversed roles
– Using specific questions regarding the organization of the forum
– Time speeding techniques
To get an insight of the organization of CIN forum, thus opening questions that remain unanswered to forum participants, as well as making a critique of the tight working tempo.
Like guerrilla action, CSN would disturb the facilitators’ regular activities in provocative and humorous spirit. The two participants will perform the quick interviews using a flip chart and stickers, while the other two participants will record the intervention in paparazzi style.
Will be visible in pubic at the plenary hole and presented to the CIN forum participants.
