THREE DAYS OF GLOBAL NETWORKS, DIGITAL CULTURE AND DISTRIBUTED POLICY IN BARCELONA

On October 25th, once again, the FCForum in Barcelona will analyse the advances of the past twelve months and will consider the future outlook in the struggle for democracy in the digital era, free culture and net neutrality.

Year after year, the FCForum serves as a civil society tool, to move forward, analyse and answer questions and observe practices that actively grapple with them. Continuing the work carried out at the FCForum in 2011 and 2012, which looked at the increasing use of the net as a tool for democratic transformation – this year it will go further into some specific issues, such as the use and misuse of Big Data, electronic voting and electronic money, and how citizens can use them to achieve a society worthy of being called democratic in the twentieth century.

The night before, artists, performers and activists from all areas of Spanish and international culture will take part in the “oXcars”, a show to demand a stop to culture being treated as merchandise by royalty management organisations and cultural industry lobbies. As they said “Because their business is not our culture.”

These days of frenzied activity that we are narrating in reverse, will begin on October 23th with the Global Revolution Seminar organized by the area of Communication and Civil Society from the Open University of Catalonia (UOC). A space for exchanging knowledge, databases, experiences, methodologies, and analyses of the virtues, limits, problems and powers of social movements from Tunisia, Egypt, Spain, US, Mexico, Turkey and Brazil.
