Creative Incubator workshop was first conducted in Nov, 2010 in Rio de Janiero, within 2 weeks, we launched Access online platform (http://access.arscenic.tv) for different local community projects. The platform is developed with SPIP open source software by Arscenic.tv and SideBySide Studio, it works best with Safari or Firefox.
There are 3 important features about this platform:
We posted participants’ feedback and more workshop information here, http://access.arscenic.tv/media/cre...
This first experimentation opened many possibilities for partner institutions and participants, we are excited to share the technology and strategies for international artistic and social collectives for thinking and working together.
Creative Incubator Workshop
In this workshop, it is not only to discuss relevant and still open questions revolving around the notions of free culture and creative industries, but going one step further, building and creating a community among local creative practioners to launch a community online platform for diversified community projects.
This workshop could take place in two distinct steps:
Step A - Design and Develop specifications for Creative Incubator Online Platform
Step B – Realize the Creative Incubator Online Platform
Long-term perspective: This workshop will be a starting point for participants to think together about conditions for creativity. They will be the polemic seeds to spread the concepts among their local network.
For the online platform, it is important the participants are fully involved in the design process, so they have a sense of ownership and desire to continue using the platform in the future.
In the long term, the online platform will serve as a network tool for Brazilian artistic community to further critical debate and exchange resources. Also, to promote the profiles of emerging artists and creative practitioners both locally and internationally.
Based on the online activities at this platform, we can monitor and evaluate what local artistic community needs to sustain their creative practices. Schools can use this information to design its curriculum for its education programme.
