FADfest Barcelona Desing Festival
What’s the impact of digital technologies, the potential of the internet and of social media on design and the creative professions? Although we’ve been immersed in them for what feels like a long time now, and a generation of digital natives is already starting to make its mark in the creative industries, the pace of change is absolutely furious. Every single day, somewhere, someone is discovering a completely new way of doing something – and telling us about it right away.
We believe that the best way to ride the wave is to share the ride – and that openness, transparency and collaboration are what will turn a technological capability into a social asset.
The Open Design / Shared Creativity Conference (ODSC) is a space where we meet up once a year to reflect and debate on the potential of the brave new world that we’re all creating together, to explore the opportunities and the challenges it brings, and share ideas and experiences.
The last edition of the conference was held on June 30th and July 1st 2014. Available video recordings and slides of each of the sessions can be found on each speaker’s profile.
