Over the past 20 years, OtherWise has given a stage to grassroot organisations, movements and other changemakers to re-imagine dominant ways of thinking, doing and being in this world. In the Week of the 18th till the 25th of April we want to celebrate OtherWise’s Lustrum with a year of delay due to the pandemic. Alongside celebrating 20 years of critical thinking and engagement we would like to use this opportunity to shine some light in this uncreative and unmotivating time. Together with the ecovillage Ppauw and you we want to build a space where we can re-imagine a better and brighter future. By re-using old existing materials, we want to co-create a social space that can be enjoyed by the inhabitants of Ppauw and the community of Wageningen. During this week we invite you to be creative, to build and craft, to dream and to re-imagine. Together we will create a new focal point at Ppauw where we can connect, empower each other and re-imagine the existing.
We will start the Lustrum week with a reunion, where recent and previous OtherWisers will meet online. During the week, we will take time to re-imagine our relationship with other beings of the earth. There will be Deep Time Walk on Earth Day, a conference about Rights of Nature and a workshop about sound. The week will be closed off with a perfomance in the newly built ampfitheatre!
