Multiply and share forth. For the free sharing of knowledge and culture.
Upgrade! Berlin and transmediale presents eXgae from Barcelona: A workshop night on free culture.
The Internet allows the horizontal exchange of information and culture between everyone. Over the course of the last decades we have reached a level of equality between original and reproduction. Because of this, mediums of production need to adapt themselves to this new type of democracy and not the other way around.
Nowadays, new ways of protecting and promoting creative outcomes emerge and need to be investigated. The goal of this workshop is to familiarize a public (not expert but interested) with the new possibilities of cultural diffusion that is offered by the digital era and its collaborative culture.
What the workshop will be about:
Practical examples: viral events, attitudes, DIY, nets|networks, P2P.
Answers to the most recurrent questions on copyrights, licenses, canon and entities of management for artists, producers, stores, bars, cultural spaces, etc.
Tools of self-defense: legal perspectives on our rights.
Addressed to: creators, trades, artists, programming cultural producers, distributing commissioners, cultural centers and citizens in general.
From 20:00 on, there will be a film screening: Presentation of the documentary The oXcars: the movie on the great event of free culture that has been carried out in Barcelona with over 100 participants.
