“Becoming #NewMacy” introduced the #NewMacy initiative and the six ACT II
Studios held at RSD11 to enact conversations for action.

#NewMacy catalyses conversations for action across disciplines, geographies,
and generations through systemic principles, processes, and communities.
#NewMacy creates conditions for enacting productive responses among
individuals and communities that bring about change in the near term while
planning for and committing to the time span required to effect lasting change.
Adopting a structure of themed and design-led Studios as framings for
conversations for action, we aim at enabling deep participation through activities
such as prototyping, play, exploration, enactment, and improvisation. At RSD11,
six #NewMacy Studios created opportunities to engage with interdisciplinary
approaches to systemic design through conversations for action: Radiant
Circles—Cybernetic Musings on Resonant Forms; Pandemic of Today’s AI; Art as
Steersmanship; Panarchy as a Sensemaking Tool; Cultural Premises, Conscious
Purpose, and Design; Prototyping Conversation.
