Cryptocurrencies, digital sharing, 3D printed goods – just some of the disruptive online practices and technologies that are transforming and reshaping our economy. These innovative technologies have impacted the market, enabling new business models, evolving market conditions and transforming economic and social landscapes. However, the commodification and commercial adoption of these disruptive technologies has also raised concerns and questions in terms of access, control and sustainability. How can we develop these practices to not only support a digital commons, but also to support more equitable and sustainable worlds?

Openhere is a 3-day international festival and conference where online practices such as sharing, peer-production and open source meet real world material economies. The program brings together researchers, artists, engineers and activists to critically engage alternative economic models and digital currencies, open source hardware and ecology, and new forms of peer production and sharing happening at the intersection of digital and real world spaces. Sessions include talks, panel discussions, workshops and screenings. 

Participants include: Benjamin Tincq, Brett Scott, Cathal Garvey, Chelsea Rustrum, Denisa Kera, Duncan McCann, Eli Gothill, Gawin Dapper, Geraldine Juárez, Graham Barnes Kevin Flanagan, Lana Swartz, Linda Doyle, Lúí Smyth, Nigel Dodd, Nora O’ Murchú, Peter Hanappe, Rachel O’Dwyer, The Robin Hood Cooperative, Sean Cubitt, Vasilis Kostakis and more.

Topics include: Alternative Currencies | Open Sourcing Finance | Open Hardware | Distributed Manufacturing | Open Source Ecology | Peer Production | Sharing Economies

All sessions free but booking recommended. For more information, program details and to book a place www.openhere.data.ie

Openhere is a joint initiative of (CTVR) The Telecommunications Research Centre in collaboration with the Dublin Art and Technology Association (D.A.T.A) and is supported by the Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin.

2014 at CTVR

The team at CTVR have returned after a well deserved break following an
intense lead up to Christmas which saw us prepare and submit a
pre-proposal for the new SFI Research Centres Programme, and undergo an
SFI site visit and review.
Our SFI Research Centres proposal fits nicely within one of the themes
of the call – Future Networks and Communications. We are really excited
about this new opportunity, we’ve put together a great expanded
consortium and we expect to hear the result of the pre-proposal stage in
early February.
Our mid-stage SFI review was carried out by six international experts
and was held over two days in December. The whole team put in a great
effort and it was nice to once again see the scale of what we’re doing
here. We look forward to receiving the feedback some time this month.

Now that we’re back, the SFI Census, and Annual Report are in
preparation, while we’re not letting up on the preparations for the new bid.

Fun times!
