This one-day symposium, co-organized by PhotoIreland and GradCAM and supported by the City Arts Office, Dublin City Council, investigates emerging possibilities around collaboration, sharing and exchange and collective models of production, consumption, and ownership across a number of arts and non-arts fields.
Existing models have a long history in the construction and maintenance of community and provision e.g. meitheal, housing and agriculture cooperatives, credit unions, artists’ communities, etc. Network societies bring with them open and crowd-sourcing, user-generated content, crowd-funding and collaborative consumption, social networks with new economic models emerging. The aim of the day is to frame these shifts and developments in the context of a new urgency and discuss what they mean for the future of cultural work, education, local and alternative economic initiatives, funding and financing, communities and networks amongst other issues.
It brings together number of local and international speakers made up of artists and theorists, activists and commentators across a number of areas and fields.
