‘Volatile’ and ‘transformative’ participation: new interviews published on Participation Now

At a conference on the theme of ‘Participatory Cultural Citizenship’ in Aarhus, in November 2013, we had the pleasure of interviewing  keynote speakers Leah Lievrouw and  Chris Kelty (who are both based at UCLA). This pair of interviews has now been published on the openDemocracy.net/Participation Now page:

Leah Lievrouw addresses the question of ‘When is citizen participation transformative?’ 

Chris Kelty talks about how he distinguishes between ‘Volatile, stable and extractive participation’

In other news, the design of the search functionality of Participation Now was updated earlier today. We think this update significantly improves the experience of filtering and exploring the collection of 100+ initiatives… give it a try and let us know what you think.
