invited vs invented
intro’d to Jaco via Moses.. Moses was explaining the invented vs invited thinking.. adding this page after reading Peter‘s community and writing to belong rev (both talking – inviting to participate/engage et al) – invented: be the originator of
invited vs invented spaces
spaces govt and ngo’s create – this is where participation is mainly – so when citizens speak – it’s coming to a space that’s already been formalized.. so – come in tell us what you want and we’ll see what we can do for you..
still not seeing entire
spaces citizens create themselves.. social life that is already in societies..
organic/explosive… harder to understand… more vibrant.. not perfect in any way – but a better indication of what’s happening on the ground..
need more of this…
resonates with Iwan Baan‘s research..
the problem behind the problem
at the core it’s about citizens not be able to create
we don’t want to participate – we want to create..
everyone is trying to *fix more participation.. but afraid of **letting go for people to actually create
most importantly – how can we do it w/o anyone else.. and what do we see as the problems.. rather than others coming in and saying what the priorities/problems are..
work – as solving other people’s problems
remaining a citizen-driven civic organization
agenda being set by donors.. work being done on them
no agenda ness
connections between citizens and communities are not really a focus
allow participation, but not a setting of the agenda
huge to school as well – any gathering – agenda setting gets in the way of sustainability
beyond participation – co-creation – interconnectedness
what a normal ecosystem looks like
chris larcombe: rather than pre determining the forms you fill in and the structure.. it allows users to create that themselves.
