Aiming to engage European audiences with the ideas described in nef’s ‘The Great Transition” report, Imagine The Great Transition presents a series of new commissions, public events and workshops that will span over multiple events in nine European countries between June 2013 and December 2014. Each member of the Imagine2020 network will present films and performances in relation with The Great Transition ideas and host lectures and masterclasses by nef experts, as an event per se or in the context of existing festivals. Artists commissioned for new works include Janis Balodis, Rui Catalão, Pieter De Buysser, Curious Directive, Inua Ellams, Geheimagentur, Dette Glashouwer, The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home, Ivan Marušić Klif, Katarina Stegnar, Amund Sjolie Sveen, Gonçalo Tocha, Mels van Zutphen, XTNT.
Building on the network’s interdisciplinary approach, this project will generate public discussions with artists, economists, politicians, philosophers, activists, community organisers and intends to develop new relationships at local and transnational levels.
ON THE NEW ECONOMICS FOUNDATION
nef (the new economics foundation), one of the UK’s leading economics think-tanks, aims to inspire a new economy based on social justice, environmental sustainability and collective well-being. In 2009, nef published ‘The Great Transition’, a report identifying the levers of change for a journey to a society that balances the market and the non-market, the private and the public, the individual and the community, in a way that safeguards the natural environment and allows us to live within the carrying capacity of our planetary resources.
