The co-p2p Special-interest-group at Aalto ARTS, led by Andrea Botero, Johanna Saad-Sulonen and Sanna Marttila, are organising 2 upcoming events on the Commons in Helsinki at Aalto Media Factory, which we recommend for your participation & attendence.
The first occasion this week on Thursday 24.10 from 09:30 -12:30 as a mapping workshop aims to ask – What forms of commons and commoning are present today in a city like Helsinki? – inviting other commons oriented practitioners and researchers here to join us in mapping existing and emerging commons in Helsinki: spaces, data, actions and tools. more info and show your interest via Facebook event.
The larger occasion is a full day seminar on Thursday 7.11. from 09.00-16.00 entitled ‘Infrastructuring the Commons?’, and aims at inquiring on the relationship of the current discourse on the commons, to emerging art, design and planning practices; specifically those engaged actively with collaborative digital media.
The group have invited renowned Commons scholar and archivist Charlotte Hess from Indiana University to give the opening keynote ‘Crafting New Commons: Designing for Collaboration, Participation, and Sustainability’.
