As part of the ā€˜Innovation Labsā€™ scheme run by the Creative Industries Fund NL, PublicSpaces has spent the past year and a half working with Waag Futurelab, Sound & Vision and the NPO on Open Culture Data Living Lab, a project that investigated how open source technology can contribute to increasing the reach and findability of cultural events and videos online.


During this session the results of the Living Lab will be presented. Then Publiq, a Belgian agency that aggregates event data and connects platforms with audiences, will tell about their solutions. What would be possible if we linked the lessons learnt by Publiq to the Living Lab research on the possibilities of Peertube, Solid, and an open decentralised events register based on publicly defined calendar standards? 


The third initiative that will be presented is Beckn. This project started in India by the FIDE ( foundation. They will share some of their activities in building decentralised digital infrastructure for art events in Paris. 

Join this session and learn more about the possibilities of open-source public infrastructures for the cultural sector.


In collaboration with: Pakhuis de Zwijger, InScience festival, STRP, Tetem, Dutch Composers Now and ArchiXL.
