This experimental workshop for 50 or more people takes its inspiration from animal species that are organised in hives. One or more organisational challenges are defined beforehand. Concrete rules of interaction allow the group to discover and follow pathways that are most promising while discontinuing less productive directions. This makes the workshop self-directing, in much the way an ant colony is able to collectively forage for food without hierarchic supervision. Results are always unpredictable, but sure to enlighten.
