In just over six weeks time, the Open Design / Shared Creativity Conference will be underway in Barcelona. This blog is to keep you informed of developments towards the conference and give you an opportunity to participate in discussions before, during and after the event.

OD/SC will explore the revolutionary scene of emerging practices such as open code, digital commons, co-creation, delocalisation and collaboration, and their impact on the world of design, art, architecture and fashion.

Digital technology and the social networks have reached a point of maturity from which a new industrial culture is emerging, revolutionising the processes of creation, mediation, distribution and consumption.

As part of the FADfest 2012, creators, activists and thinkers will explore over two days the reality and the potential of open design culture, from new business models to the most experimental creative practices.

Join us in July!
