The workshop aims to enhance and disseminate bodily autonomy and rethink possible relationships with the "perturbing" entities that embody us. It is part of ongoing research of radical optical consensus at 100x and 250x, through a commoning hack of the boundaries between what has been labelled for a long time as strictly internal or external to the human body.
During this workshop participants will be involved in the discovery of scientific protocols and tools to redefine the way we can contribute and redesign the narrative around science. By an immersive experience in analysing body fluids such as tears, we will create a shared repository of images of their crystallisation ("stagograms": from the Greek "stagón", drop and "grámma", picture) and explore different interpretations of their pattern promoting collaborative inquiry practices.

This form is designed to collect information about participants' backgrounds and previous knowledge of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and urinary tract infections (UTIs). This data is used to improve the design of the workshop.
During the MAKEAWARE! workshops, participants will be asked to collaborate and share personal experiences and stories about antimicrobial and antibiotic resistance, antibiotic consumption, and urinary tract infection diseases and remedies. Different media such as photos, graphics, and texts will be used to document the outputs of the collaboration process. The outputs will be edited or coded and shared via the repository as anonymized open datasets for anyone to use.
