Abstract [en]

8 women in a dark Nordic winter forest, playing around with flashlights, accompanied by the echoing of a world famous Arabic singer from their mobile phones-

what has this to do with creative and playful cities?

 

This forest expedition was a part of a non-traditional participatory research and action project from southeastern Sweden. The project provides the empirical material for our reflective story. The overall aim of the project was to investigate, through playful explorations, how a diverse group of women can transform for us unfamiliar places, both concerning geographical, cultural, social aspects, and also how places in themselves can transform people. Ultimately the project also challenged the notion of citizenship not as a legal term but as an active and ongoing becoming. The core group of the project was created by academic scholars, municipality and a number of female immigrants from Syria.

 

When we started to plan the project we were in need of theoretical guides that could support us in our playfulness, without losing the critical and situated understanding of our trajectory and hence we identified some key concepts provided by our epistemological companions, such as:  caring (de la Bellacasa, 2012), touching/becoming (de la Bellacasa, 2009), messiness (Law, 2004). To meet up these approaches we had to rely on and develop methods that could enable the exploratory playfulness; therefore, we turned to the artistic movements of Situationists and Surrealists.

 

These choices demanded a sensitive awareness towards ourselves, each other and the places. We locate this project as a transdisciplinary framework of site-specific games, participatory design and feminist research.

Abstract [es]

8 mujeres jugando con linternas en un oscuro e invernal bosque Nórdico, acompañadas por los ecos en sus celulares de una cantante árabe mundialmente famoso -

Qué tiene que ver esto con ciudades creativas y divertidas?

 

Ésta expedición al bosque fue parte de un proyecto no tradicional de investigación-acción participativa en el sud-este Sueco. El proyecto proporcionó el material empírico para nuestra historia reflexiva. El objetivo general del proyecto fue investigar, a partir de divertidas exploraciones, cómo un grupo diverso de mujeres pueden transformar para nosotros lugares desconocidos, por un lado sobre los aspectos geográficos, culturales y sociales, y por otro sobre cómo lugares por si mismos pueden transformar a las personas. En el fondo el proyecto también desafió la noción de ciudadanía, no como un término legal, sino como un activo y continuo "llegar a ser". El equipo central del proyecto estuvo conformado por académicos, agentes de la municipalidad, y un grupo de mujeres inmigrantes Sirias.

 

Cuando comenzamos a planificar el proyecto tuvimos la necesidad de referentes teóricos que pudieran apoyarnos en nuestra diversión "playfulness", sin perder el entendimiento crítico y situado de nuestra trayectoria. Así pues, identificamos algunos conceptos clave provistos por nuestras acompañantes epistemológicas, tales como: cuidado "caring" (de la Bellacasa, 2012), tocar-sentir/llegar a ser "touching/becoming" (de la Bellacasa, 2009), desorden "messiness" (Law, 2004). Para encontrarnos con estos enfoques hemos usado y desarrollado métodos que pudieran facilitarnos una exploración divertida "the exploratory playfulness"; por lo tanto nos inclinamos hacia los artísticos movimientos de Situacionistas y Surrealistas.    

 

Estas elecciones demandaron una conciencia sensible de nosotras mismas, de cada una y de los lugares. Nosotras localizamos este proyecto como un marco transdisciplinario de juegos geolocalizados "site specific games", diseño participativo e investigación feminista.
