Open Congress

Creativity and the public domain

Friday 7th Saturday 8th October 2005, 11am - 5pm.

Tate Britain, Millbank London SW1P 4RG 

Inspired by Free Software, which challenges conventional practices of
authorship, ownership and distribution, this innovative congress explores
the implications of those developments for art, visual culture and cultural
production in general. 

Taking place across two days, the Congress will be structured through three themes
of Governance, Creativity and Knowledge; and an array of international and UK
participants - artists, theorists, academics and activists - will shape Open
Congress through presentations, discussion, workshops and events.

 The Congress includes Cory Doctorow - from the EFF, Lawrence Liang - Alternative
Law Foundation, Mckenzie Wark - A Hacker Manifesto, Johanna Gibson, Libre Society,
Trebor Scholz - The Institute of Distributed Creativity, Tiziana Terranova,
Talkaoke, and Wireless London among many others.

 In collaboration with Chelsea College of Art and Design, Node.l, Wireless
