Can the act of gathering and isolation contribute to articulating new forms of mutual learning and group working?

Does experiencing communal life in isolated areas shift social relations?

Can the experience of leisure and unproductive daily tasks be a generative process with critical potential?


Radical Intention addresses and discusses these issues by setting up Decompression Gathering Summer Camp, a one-week residency of decompression, communal living and group working that takes place at the end of the summer, before urban life and its busyness picks up again.
