What does it mean today to make democratic decisions in the political and cultural field? How do we create tactics and strategies to promote collaborative processes? What practices are being implemented at both local and global level? Are commons potential laboratories for cultural and political democracy? How can cultural actors and governments co-create participatory democracies?

From three different points of view (cultural policy, organizational perspective and art production in relation to policy), notions of decision making and co-imaginative practices will be discussed.
