<nettime-ann> Openhere Festival 14.11-16.11 2014


âOpenhereÂ14.11-16.11 2014

3D printed goods, cryptocurrencies, digital sharing â 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?

Openhere 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:ÂBenjamin Tincq, Brett Scott, Cathal Garvey, Chelsea Rustrum, Denisa Kera, Duncan McCann, Eli Gothill, Gawin Dapper, Geraldine JuÃrez, Graham Barnes Kevin Flanagan, Lana Swartz, Linda Doyle, LÃÃ Smyth, Nigel Dodd, Nora Oâ MurchÃ, Peter Hanappe, Rachel OâDwyer, The Robin Hood Cooperative, Sean Cubitt, Vasilis Kostakis and more.
