Workshops begin with a place : a sports club pitch, a research lab office, an exhibition room or the courtyard of a building. With the host, we define the question that they would like to put forward.
We could, for example, discuss governance, performance or « good deeds »; it’s very open and anyone can make suggestions. GONGLE, through its Art-Sport network, then unites athletes, artists and civil servants to share their different approaches to the question posed by the host.
The workshops are designed as spaces for social diplomacy, an opportunity to prepare for encounters across different sectors and the chance to be free from the usual social roles. We talk, move, drink, eat, laugh and play. Children are welcome!
