Open Up Open-Source: Co-designing a Human-Centered Approach to Collaboration

It is Time to Make New Ways for The Sake of Democracy

When we talk about open-source in the tech/design community we often do so in esoteric terms focused on value creation in our products and business models. In this session, we take a step back (or a leap forward?) to look beyond our own sender oriented propositions and think about open source as a tool for societal, democratic activism and participation.

Join this productive conversation on how we, the designer, maker and tech community, can take on a leading role in the future of activism, on how we can open up not only our work and spaces but build a methodology for co-design, democratic access and citizen activism. A broad group of pioneers from hardware, software, arts and crafts, the maker community and most importantly the field of citizen activism will join us, whom on a daily basis are digging deep into the mud of participation and collaboration.
