Wikitoki is an experimental process in and of itself. It is a Research and Development laboratory around social / cultural / economic / political matters that are connected by collaborative practices as a common thread. Wikitoki is a community of practice, action and reflection. It is an ongoing training process of research, conceptualisation, prototyping and co-creation. Wikitoki is a place for PRODUCTION (creation, work, activism, research), RE-PRODUCTION (social, relational) and CULTURAL DISSEMINATION (education, exhibition). Wikitoki is a meeting place within a network of spaces, initiatives and programs, where physical and digital dimensions connect.
From “a new place” towards finding “other” ways of doing things
Wikitoki is a place for experimenting around new ways of dealing with relationships, organization, research, creation, production and consumption.
Wikitoki’s activities focus on proposals with social, economical, urban, cultural and political implications that are developed through the mixture of disciplines and the activation of co-creation and active participation of citizens and organizations. Wikitoki designs and develops projects, organizes workshops, seminars, congresses and different types of educational and public activities. Wikitoki promotes meetings, articulates dynamics and facilitates synergies; it accompanies and gets implicated in emergent initiatives; it conducts research and releases publications. All these activities are developed around concepts as co-creation, hybridization, P2P, commons, entrepreneurship and social economy, open enterprise, artistic practices, applied creativity, collaborative consumption, participatory urbanism, community development, social technologies, digital fabrication, expanded education, design thinking, anthropological doing, social psychology, digital narratives…
Our activities promote:
- A dialogue between agents and transdisciplinary practices working in a mixture of different means of research, production, education, accompaniment and cultural dissemination.
- The convergence of the different activities developed by each of the members of the association (and other external agents) trying to bring together different groups of interest. Also the collective development of activities by the members of WikiToki, aiming to strengthen the sense of community and the generation of synergies and joint projects.
- The generation of a balanced program around different concepts: Face-to-Face / Digital; Productive / Reproductive (relational); Material / Immaterial; Professional / Amateur…
- The active presence of the agents and the project in general in local and international networks.
