How do we improve the user experience of democracy?

How do you get the mood right for collective decision making?  What can politics of the future learn from event design, service design, theatre, architecture, and  psychology?

Join The People Speak’s co-founder Mikey Weinkove, artist-in-residence for Segue 2017, as he investigates our collective imagination and explores how we can use performance and live art to inspire and support all people to perform discussions, debates and proposals in a way that is open and inviting.

Politics seems to be one of the few areas of performance that has not accepted the dogma that all human interaction is performance. Mikey will talk about creating an ambiance in which people feel safe, are confident to speak and trust the outcome.  He’ll also examine ways to rediscover democratic process’s ability to engage, to make bureaucratic and political processes inviting, compelling even! He will also share projects designed to help anyone who wants to start a conversation in a neighbourhood or an organisation, at a festival or at a product launch (basically anywhere there are people and something to talk about!)

The People Speak are a creative technologically-minded art ensemble determined to inspire, enable, provoke, and tease conversation and debate out of the people. In this forum Mikey will share his experiences working  with The People Speak in Europe, the UK, and beyond with art that seeks to be alert and responsive to its contexts, sites and audiences.
