Session 7
Cultural creatives in the Alps

How do they drive social innovation and transition?

Cultural creatives is a social movement first studied in the USA by sociologists Ray and Anderson (2000), identifying countless organizations and groups discreetly working to shape the future, without being aware of their driving force.
Who and where are they in the Alps, and how do they transform everyday life?
The workshop aims to link the reading template of cultural creatives with the question of social innovation in the Alps, to understand how individuals and collectives create and experiment with ways of living, and work in tune to meet the challenges of transition.
