Once Upon a Future is a fiction of a possible Bordeaux in 2030, inspired by citizen’s initiatives, and made in the format of a novel and exhibition – with contributions by a writer and a number of graphic and comic artists. 2030 is a target year for Bordeaux – the year in which the city desires to reach the magic number of one million inhabitants. Once Upon a Future is an imagination of this city not just told through the institutional strategies and plans – but based on the activities of groups of inhabitants that are already today assembling to construct a ‘better’ collective life. It starts from the question – how would the future look if citizen’s collective capacity would grow and become Bordeaux’s main driving force? Once upon a future is curated by STEALTH.unlimited (Marc Neelan and Ana Dzokic, recently affiliated PhDcandidate in Konstnärliga forskarskolan) and Emil Jurcan, and made in collaboration with architecture center arc en rêve, Once Upon a Future has been produced for the biannual Evento 2011 directed by artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, under the motto “art for an urban re-evolution”.

The course will examine the nature of qualitative research in various research “genres” and intellectual traditions; participants will practice the tools and methods of qualitative research, and discuss quality in qualitative research.
This experiential course will provide a space to explore the dynamic relationship between theory and method in diversity of settings, in a mix of lecture, fieldwork, and seminar. Intensive observations (of so called “static” as well as “real time” events,) and interviewing, identifying research themes and issues will be used for group reflections/interpretations creating a space for an interpretive zone.For more information and registration, please contact Eva Saether at the Malmö Academy of Music, mail Eva.Saether@mhm.lu.se
