Economies of the Commons, Amsterdam
Thursday October 11, 2012 - Friday October 12, 2012
The third in a series of conferences will focus on the economics of sharing in knowledge commons. Hosted by Images for the Future in Amsterdam, Economies of the Commons (eCommons) believe "that technology brings fundamental change to the way cultural heritage institutes work and the expectations their audiences have of them. Institutes are no longer the exclusive ‘holders and curators of culture’ while their audiences have become accustomed to their active roles as co-producers of culture––they want to create, curate and co-produce cultural artifacts." The conference seeks to "encourage re-thinking and re-imagining and create a platform to discuss the challenges and future of archives."
