Ratsinformationen für den Alltagsgebrauch (Council information for everyday use)
Podcasts for the participation of citizens in local political decision-making processes
Artist, activist and radio producer Aino Stratemann plans to work with citizens of the Steinhöfel municipality to create five short podcasts on local political resolutions and current political debates. What is important that is decided? Why are there non-public parts of the meetings? What are long-term issues that recur and affect everyone? News from neighbors* for neighbors*.
"As a Landschwärmerin for a year, I'm trying to find a new format in Heinersdorf that will allow the local community to get an overview of local political issues.
Part of the idea is to go through the local council minutes posted on the council information system, and conduct interviews on as many of the issues raised there as possible with the people who brought up or pushed those items. The other part of the idea is to find a good way to make those interviews easily audible and accessible to anyone interested.
In the big picture, this is one of many attempts to break down barriers to democratic participation. From an artistic point of view, I would like to emphasize that I think it is important to reduce the fear of unprofessionalism and to strengthen the trust in respectful interaction. I would like to sincerely thank everyone I met during this project, especially because they gave the impression of having a sincere interest in respectful engagement."
