An AuzoLab is a hybridisation methodology for promoting innovation and change in social organisations. It applies to a group of people who gather to rethink their own practices and imagine different ways of acting collectively. Whether they are connected or not to a single organisation, what brings them together is a desire to unite their thinking and efforts to seek answers for the needs that have been identified.
In order to achieve this, AuzoLabs have the help of professionals with “improbable” profiles; that is, at times artists or creators, but on other occasions people with very divergent profiles regarding the group with which they will work (anthropologists, philosophers, sociologists, economists, architects...). These so-called “different others” bring diversity to the group, another way of thinking and experiencing, enlivening the processes and assuming responsibility for a final result.
All combined with the methodological support and monitoring of c2+i/Conexiones improbables.
Consequently, it is not about the usual citizen participation processes in which proposals are made so that public authorities or other entities can implement them. Instead, the processes seek new fields of action and transformation of the environment within the energy of the group itself, which has been instilled with diversity and method, although this in no way prevents institutions from supporting practices that have emerged from AuzoLabs.
