HYPERUNIONISATION is an international online platform aiming to foster a transnational network of groups, institutions and organisations focused on the rights of cultural workers in Europe and worldwide. The project is produced by AWI and has been supported by the European Cultural Foundation.
HYPERUNIONISATION aims at creating dialogue and mutual support between these entities, implementing effective solidarity practices for those presently in need, and activating a
common learning process to analyse and share tools of ethical, political and legal nature that can help cultural workers to survive the contemporary crisis and in the long term.

HOW TO INSTITUTE
Moderated by Justin Randolph Thompson [AWI]
The second roundtable will focus on the creation of new institutions as a strategy for the centering of values that are dismissed by canons and master narratives and as a tactic for fostering an alternative to access and integration into pre-existing structures. Thinking about pluralised historical narratives, alternative forms of education and the activist role of mediation from within cultural institutions, the conversation reflects upon geo-political gatekeeping and transnational conversations rooted in local realities. How can we create models and templates for the change we want to see? How can we re-calibrate the value attributed to cultural workers and to marginalized communities through forms of institution building? What are the limitations to the infiltration of institutions in order to promote radical change from within?
