(symposium) Community Now? The Politics of Participatory Design, Jewish Museum Berlin, 19.02.–21.02.2015

they write:

The symposium focusses on emergent issues of bottom-up movements, especially in relation to current social developments in Germany and Israel. Together with guests and projects from all over we explore how to promote processes of active participation and support a sustainable development of communities, their impact on policy making and our everyday life. The event is the closure of the two years research project between Germany and Israel.
