Culture Open Source Forum 2017 Germany

The Cultural Innovators Network (CIN) announces the Call for Participants for the CIN Culture Open Source Forum 2017, which will take place in Berlin, from the 31st Aust to the 2nd of September.

DEADLINE: June 11, 2017

Culture Open Source is a 10-months project of the Cultural Innovators Network in partnership with the Goethe-Institut. The process has already started with a decentralised research on participcommunications@culturalinnovators.orgatory practices in the Euro-Mediterranean region and three Local Preparatory Meetings (LPM) in Jordan, Serbia, and Greece, carried out and curated by groups of CIN members to map local initiatives and collect data on common challenges and best practices in the use of participatory approaches. The findings will be reviewed by CIN Research Working Group and presented during the Forum as a basis for further discussion and work.


The Forum will be an opportunity for representatives of cultural initiatives and organisations around the Mediterranean region to share their challenges, best practices, and experiences of using participatory approaches in the management and co-production of cultural activities. Three days of roundtables, workshops, plenary debates, cultural events, where participants will have the chance to network and discuss with their peers and find solutions to common challenges. Moreover, applicants have the opportunity to propose workshops and artistic content through the application form.



Organisation’s background in terms of:

• Participatory approach in its management, implementation, and/or project creation

CIN is looking for formal and informal organisations, networks, initiatives, among others, coming from public, civil and private sectors, in the field of culture, that have experience in using participatory approaches in their organisational structure, management and/or planning, creation, implementation, and evaluation of different activities (e.g.: projects, courses, performances, researches). The term “participatory approach” comprehends all the organisational structures, tools, and methodologies actively involving ‘the public’ in planning, decision-making, implementation, and/or evaluation processes, whereby the relevant ‘public’ may be citizens, members of a community/network/organisation, the stakeholders of a particular project or policy, etc. Participation is based on non-hierarchical management, peer collaboration, and knowledge sharing.

CIN is looking for participants that have implemented the above mentioned participatory approaches in anumber of activities and/or in their daily management. Whether you are part of an initiative, collective, project team, social enterprise, association, network, organization, educational institute, hub, among else, your experience, point of view, success stories, challenges, and even failures, are at the core of this forum. We are not looking for many years of experience, but for relevant experience. So whether you are part of a 20-years-old organisation, or a recently established initiative, do apply. Examples we can think of are: a public cultural centre, a music band, an independent theatre group, an NGO/CSO, social innovation project, educational institutes, art collectives, academic departments, researchers’ groups, community initiatives, international network, festivals, etc.)
