As part of the Spaces of Possibility confex, which merged a conference and exhibition into a singular event, RECOMS put together an interactive exhibition intended to stimulate dialogue and reflection about resilience and resourcefulness of communities in times of social and environmental uncertainty. The goal was to put the spotlight on community-driven transformation and to inspire the local neighbourhoods, as well as policy decision-makers, and academia.
The exhibition took place from the 7th until the 11th of June 2021 in the little greenhouse Parckfarm, situated in the Thurn and Taxis park in Brussels (Belgium). For those that missed out on the event, this exhibition catalogue provides an anthology of the stories that were told and the objects that were exhibited. It also explains the design of the exhibition, it sketches the atmosphere that was created and showcases the local aspirations on resilience and resourcefulness that were collected during the event.
What is more, this exhibition catalogue aims to inspire other researchers and practitioners that want to experiment with exhibitions. For this reason, it includes a sneak peek into the creative process and clarifies key decisions in terms of design, location and other important parameters. Thus, the exhibition catalogue summarizes the lessons learned about setting up an exhibition within a research project. We hope to trigger your curiosity about the presence of Spaces of Possibility and to poke your eagerness to experiment with exhibitions.
