This year, amberPlatform offers a new collective festival model instead of a curated one. amber’15 invites academics, curators, makers and creative individuals (and institutions?) to be part of a sustainable, inclusive, open and common grounds collaboration.
The applicants can vote for the works during the jury roundtable on July 25 and be part of the selection committee of the festival.
As we embark on this new structure, we envision a new and integral ecology of which technology is an essential part, that aims at democratization of the relations of production and consumption; and promotes movements we have been supporting since the very beginning such as open source, free apps, DIY or do it together, ecological activism, sustainable living, urban farming, community (guerrilla) gardening and slow city. We propose a festival in these lines. See the Pre Events post to learn more
