*Open*here *14.11-16.11 2014*
cryptocurrencies, digital sharing, 3D printed goods – just some of the
disruptive online practices and technologies that are transforming and
reshaping our economy. These innovative technologies have impacted the
market, enabling new business models, evolving market conditions and
transforming economic and social landscapes. However, the
commodification and commercial adoption of these disruptive technologies
has also raised concerns and questions in terms of access, control and
sustainability. How can we develop these practices to not only support a
digital commons, but also to support more equitable and sustainable worlds?
*Open*here is a 3-day international festival and conference where online
practices such as sharing, peer-production and open source meet real
world material economies. The program brings together researchers,
artists, engineers and activists to critically engage alternative
economic models and digital currencies, open source hardware and
ecology, and new forms of peer production and sharing happening at the
intersection of digital and real world spaces. Sessions include talks,
panel discussions, workshops and screenings.
*Participants include:*Benjamin Tincq, Brett Scott, Cathal Garvey,
Chelsea Rustrum, Denisa Kera, Duncan McCann, Eli Gothill, Gawin Dapper,
