Free and Open Source Technologies, Arts and Commoning Practices An Unconference about Art, Design, Technology, Making, Cities and their Communities
University of Nicosia Research Foundation, Nicosia, Cyprus
PHYGITAL project. Co-organized in collaboration with Lakatamia Municipality/hack66 and the Fine Arts Programme, Department of Design and Multimedia, University of Nicosia.
What kind of creativity comes after today’s digital cultures? After the smart city, post-surveillance, post-innovation, when social entrepreneurship discourse has ran its course?
In the last few years there has been a sharp momentum in the growth of groups and spaces that operate under collective and community- driven structures of collaboration and shared learning processes (onsite and online). This is happening in parallel to greater debates around the fate of the commons, openness, freedom of access and how new digital scapes are influencing how we shape socially and community orientated art, design and technological practices.
The unconference brings together scholars and practitioners across fields, to convene, share, and collaborate on issues around the physical and digital commons, the free and open source art and technology movements, as well as collective and community- driven structures of collaboration and shared pedagogic processes (onsite and online).
We invite 15-20min presentations, panels, abstracts, posters, and workshop/unpanel proposals by 28/02/2019.
