Cultuur 2.0 borrows from Web 2.0, the new generation of internet applications and practice that emphasize generating, sharing and classifying content, collective intelligence, collaboration, sharing, reviewing, ranking, rating, and empowering users.
In which ways can such developments be applied in the cultural sector? Will cultural institutions generate other forms of content or approaches by embracing the 2.0 mindset and connecting to the active internet user – or would this mean the end of culture as we know it?
On Wednesday May 30 Cultuur 2.0 will welcome approximately 100 participants for a conference day that will hopefully stimulate & irritate. Speakers will bring the audience to the length and breadth of Web 2.0 and all it’s perceived wonders and threats.
Key speakers from the business world, government policy and cultural sector will include: CHARLES LEADBEATER/OLA AHLVARSSON/DICK RIJKEN/SANDERIJN CELS/BOB STUMPEL/BORIS VELDHUIZEN VAN ZANTEN/KABINET ONLINE (ONLINE CABINET)
The second day of Cultuur 2.0, Thursday 31 May, takes the form of a Lab. Each scenario lab brings together representatives from the world of Web 2.0 & the arts or Web 2.0 and Cultuur. Together they cooperate, learn, clash or perhaps even melt together. The scenario workshops examine the questions raised by the ‘scenario – holders’ in relation to applications of the Web 2.0 school of thought to the way they run their business or develop policy.
During the conference an exhibition will take place that offers examples of Cultuur 2.0 applications and crossovers from across the globe.
