About Economies of the Commons

De Balie in Amsterdam and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and  
Vision in Hilversum, in collaboration with Knowledgeland, Images for  
the Future, and Virtual Platform, organise a two-day international  
public working conference on the economies, sustainability, and  
opportunities for creative reuse of these public audiovisual resources  
and archives.

The Economies of the Commons conference will focus on three core  
issues: strategies for sustainability, new modes of value creation,  
and the potentials for creative reuse around the digital commons. Our  
main questions are:
- What kinds of strategies are available to facilitate the growth of  
these emerging public knowledge resources, and guarantee their longer- 
term sustainability?
- How is value created around the emerging digital commons, and how  
can this value be capitalised on for the public good?
- How can these resources be activated as a creative productive force  
for contemporary culture, and how can the reuse of these enormously  
rich resources be facilitated and stimulated?

The conference brings together a highly international group of  
specialists, including Peter Kaufman (Intelligent Television), Rick  
Prelinger (Prelinger Archives), Roei Amit (INA), Kenneth Goldsmith  
(UbuWeb), Anthony McCann (Hallam University), Hubert Best (Best &  
Soames / FOCAL), Lucie Guibault (University of Amsterdam), Florian  
Schneider (Kein.tv) David Bollier (On The Commons), and many others.

The Economies of the Commons conference addresses a range of target  
groups that do not regularly meet each other. These include:  
(broadcast) media professionals, representatives from cultural  
heritage organisations, internet entrepreneurs, ethnomusicologists,  
musicians and representatives of the music industry, media activists,  
researchers in the domains of internet law, economy, information  
science, p2p file sharing activists, policy makers, and professionals  
from the field of art and culture.

A web dossier has been set up that provides further information on the  
conference program and side events, program updates, and information  
on speakers and highlighted case studies, as well as general  
background and research materials. This dossier can be found at:
