The initiative Meeting Democracy is initiated by Beat Sandkühler in collaboration with Wolfgang Scheffler, a founder of BürgerInnengutachten Party. Drawing on the citizen-report-procedures applied performatively in small groups Meeting Democracy invites you to give shape to a planning cell allowing to question, discuss yet most importantly experience and act out participatory democracy methods. Developed as a self-directed transmission from within of the Narrowcast House in the north of the city the performance aims to test, share and spread a diversity of elements at the core of participatory democracy.
The initiative Meeting Democracy will present itself at documenta 14 at the 09th.08. till the 16th.08. at Narrowcast House in the Nordstadt in Kassel.
Answers and suggestions for political questions can we work out in small groups independently. The method citizen report with planing cell, developed by professor Peter Dienel in Wuppertal, has been applied already more than a hundred times in Europe. We want to present the method, spread the idea of a participatory democracy and experience it in a citizen report performance.
