Abstract Participation is considered an important tool of development. Two mechanisms of participation are distinguished - deliberative and performative. Deliberative participation is vulnerable to capture by elites. A postwar agricultural reconstruction project in Sierra Leone experimented with a performative approach to participation, Technological dynamics served to focus attention on alternatives to patrimonial value systems. The article advocates further experiments in linking deliberative and performative participation.
