Institutions that provide care, from health to social, are faced with a lack of funds and people, neglected infrastructure, exclusion of a large number of citizens who need care, and increasingly complex procedures to realize the right to care. At the same time, large parts of these sectors are privatized and care is left to market. In such conditions, a number of officials and those directly providing care are fighting against such tendencies, consciously bending, circumventing and breaking regulations in order to be able to provide care.
With the intention of creating a theoretical framework for understanding the described practices, we held a workshop Understanding Acts of Institutional Tinkering as Forms of Care, the results of which will be the subject of this public talk.
Moderated by Valeria Graziano and Davor Mišković, the talk will take place in the large hall of Filodrammatica (Korzo 28/1, Rijeka), on Thursday, April 27, starting at 8 p. m. Admission is free and all are welcome to join and participate in the discussion.
