Arctic Perspective Open Space Conference

PHOENIX Halle | 09/24/2010 - 09/26/2010

The Arctic Perspective open space conference will take place in Dortmund, Germany, from September 24 – 26, 2010. It will gather some of the most dynamic thinkers from and on the circumpolar regions and the open source technology and tactical media communities in an intense three day situation involving critical debate and reflection.

Collectively, the conference will serve as working meeting to envision future strategies of circumpolar interconnectedness, exchange, strategies and tactics of autonomy, the landscape of current circumpolar geopolitics, mobility, open-source information sharing, citizen sensing strategies, ecology, culture and the arts.

Active members of indigenous circumpolar communities, thinkers, writers, architects, artists, and technologists will participate in the open space. They will work towards making an inclusive statement regarding an autonomous, indigenous driven future of the global North as it relates to access to new technologies and infrastructures and a future, technologically mediated, ecologically sound mobility.

The open space conference is happening in conjunction with the Arctic Perspective exhibition at the PHOENIX Halle Dortmund (June 18 – October 10, 2010) in the context of the European Capital of Culture RUHR.2010.

In the context of the open space conference, the following lectures will be open for the public:
