4Cs - From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture


Infinite Creativity for a Finite World

More than just an exhibition, ExpoAction offers visitors the opportunity to plunge into the heart of a plurality of actions in progress carried out by a new generation of designers committed over the long term to the valorisation of collective creative impulses, to reveal the power of social bonds.

Sensible Grounds: Communities of Oblivion

"Communities of Oblivion" is part of the multi-chapter pro­gram of moving image prac­tices, "Sensible Grounds", curated by Azar Mahmoudian. The pro­gram con­tem­plates his­tor­ical capac­i­ties of the cin­e­matic space as phys­ical and mental envi­ron­ments, in cre­ating forms of sociality, through double acts of bearing wit­ness and re-visioning worlds

Celebrating crafts for social change

4Cs Mediation Lab, ‘Celebrating crafts for social change’ will be ENSAD’s action within 4Cs 2018-19. It is a workshop and class that offers students to co-create a pedagogic service of know-how transmission.

Towards sharing common futures

From 5 to 7 February 2020, designers, researchers, philosophers and artists will reflect and work together on how to stimulate and cultivate diversity and critical thinking while catalysing the positive resources needed to address the impending environmental, social and cultural catastrophe.

Cultivating Conviviality

The workshop “Cultivating Conviviality” aims to show the importance of understanding and integrating the social, political and cultural issues of the present and past migrations in solving conflict situations by applying design methodologies. More specifically, the objective of the workshop is that of co-creating new tools of conviviality that will allow society as a whole, to improve “togetherness” by highlighting specific knowhows of migrants, or “expert newcomers” as we decided to name them. These tools are the results of different problematics that link each specific context and territory, to food and culture.
