The Cultural Innovators Network (CIN) is happy to announce the Open Call for Participants for the CIN Culture Open Source Forum 2017, which will take place in Berlin on the 31st August, 1st and 2nd of September 2017.
CIN members together with representatives of other cultural initiatives and organisations across the Mediterranean region are invited to apply to the first CIN unconference around the theme of participatory approaches in cultural management and co-production. Three days of roundtables, workshops, plenary debates, speeches to share best practices, challenges, and visions. The participants will formulate recommendations and action plans to strengthen the culture of participation in the region both on a grassroots level and on a cultural policy and advocacy one.

The deadline for submission is Sunday, 11th of June 2017, 23.00 (Berlin time).
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 participatory practices in the Mediterranean region and three Local Preparatory Meetings 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.
