About

Re-imaginary focuses on transformational sustainability.

We are an international group of passionate researchers and practitioners collaborating through the SUSPLACE Innovation Training Network, which is focused on place-based transformations towards sustainability. This website is a result of ongoing collective research and experimentation with creative and arts-based methods of engagement.

The methods and resources shared here are just a starting point and can inform the design of workshops, events, co-production strategies, and the development of sustainability initiatives. Used alone or in concert, they invite improvisation and are not intended to be a comprehensive list - there are many creative people and groups working on this topic around the world.

Engage

Engage the senses, surface emotions, support diverse ways of communicating and processing information, and weave in ecological mindsets

Re-imagine

Arts-based methods can spark new spaces of possibility in people’s imagination, leading to innovation and renewed clarity, purpose, and motivation

Act

Use in co-production and strategic planning processes, community engagement, leadership & capacity building, climate & environmental communication, participatory academic research

Theoretical foundations

Creative methods have the potential to help uncover and nourish the inherent resourcefulness and wisdom already existing amongst groups of people. They can do this by creating the conditions to deepen reflexivity and openness to new perspectives and possibilities. They can draw greater attention to processes of knowledge creation, especially as developed within specific social-ecological-cultural contexts.

We use theory U as an organizing principle, social-ecological transformations as a framework for understanding place-based change processes that integrate culture and nature, and care-based approaches as our underlying values and assumptions.
