Remix : Culture Hacking Panel at Mindfield, Dublin, April 29th

Remix : Culture Hacking

The Remix is no longer solely the domain of the DJ. Culture is a
conversation and today in the Internet age more people than ever are
taking part contributing their own creative take on the sounds, images
and texts that shape our world. Cheap access to digital tools and
broadband means anyone can remix and publish online. Its become a part
of everyday life. But this emergent culture of sharing and remixing is
not without its challenges. Mashups and remixes are frequently taken
down by popular websites like Youtube as a result of copyright
infringement claims in effect censoring and destroying what is one of
the 21st centuries most distinct and vibrant forms of counter-cultural
creative expression.

musicians, technologists and legal academics for a lively discussion
and debate on the future of Remix Culture.

Featuring Michel Bauwens (P2P Foundation), Benjamin Gaulon (Artist),
Darius Whelan (Creative Commons Ireland), Loughlin McSweeney
