Abstract

EnviroCity 2017 was a muti-genre festival for COLridor project. The concept of the multi-genre EnviroCity Festival is very open, though there is one strict rule: all performers(dancers, performing artists, AV artists, musicians, lecturers, workshops leaders, disputers, etc.) must have been somewhat related to the topic of the project. Therefore, the trans-disciplinary performers co-designed the project through their performance, the project’s interpretation and their influence on the audience. The fields consisted of local community ecological NGOs, politicians, social-geographers, architects, national heritage architects, systemic designers, ecologists and biologists as well as dancers and performing artists and audio-visual shows. Some performances were more interactive and some less, and some were either more or less research-oriented. Therefore, a broad range of ages and social groups became engaged and participated in the festival events.Even the owner, whose interests were related to development,observed the events through his window and often participated on-place, though not actively.While the discussions among politicians and experts helped reach some solutions at the public agencies level, the artistic performances and ecological workshops, such as seed bombs and bird and bat mapping,included the audience through personal but public engagement. The research-oriented lectures engaged a more professional community in the research field. In addition, the knowledge generated through these performances had diverse characteristics. While researchers tend to provide in-depth explicit references, proposals regarding how to approach the issues and discussions, performing artists tend to communicate on tacit or even subliminal levels,all mainly relating to urbanised ground and/or its options for social situations.The NGO’s brunch, the community GIGA-Mapping workshop, the interactive AV, AR and VR games for children and the political discussions allowed for exchanging specific local information and generated a sense of community togetherness. The physical seed bombing and the various types of species mapping offered learning through interaction, while Systems Oriented Design, environmental design, social geography and traditional architecture eco-systemic performative capacities references were also discussed. Although these prototypes often had no physical character, they all served as prototypical urban interventions, generating eco-systemic performance through co-design, whether through public or other means (seed bombs, etc.).
