Art is Open Source will be at the Open Innovation Week in Brazil for a workshop and a seminar about Near Future Design, and to speak about how to confront with unknown challenges in Innovation, for a more participatory, performative vision of the future, and about how the arts and design can collaborate with sciences to imagine, design and enact positive, sustainable futures.

Our workshop on Near Future Design will be held on November 26th and will deal with the challenges which come by trying to engage society into searching and finding the forms and processes which will shape their (near) future.
This kind of activity bears a lot of potential for all types of subjects involved.
For governments and administrations, who can facilitate the emergence of such processes, and use them to activate citizens and operators to create positive, constructive futures in collaborative ways, and to observe and model the ways in which societies change in the process, to highlight anything from trends to people’s desires and expectations, to design new policies and best practices.
For operators – such as companies, foundations and associations – to engage citizens into designing their preferred, desired futures, through expression and communication, being able to invent new business models, new opportunities, new policies.
For citizens, to be able to push forward their perception of what is “possible”, to collaboratively search and find their preferred futures, and to enact them, with the collaboration of the whole society, including governments and organizations.

In this scenario the ability to open up to a global conversation which confronts this vision to ethical, environmental, societal and political issues is a fundamental asset, as is the capacity to capture the results of these dialogues, and to integrate them into the vision itself.
This is the era of continuous disruption, in which game-changers – the organizations who are able to radically change the rules of business, governance, design and politics, and to re-frame problems and issues in new, unexpected ways – are the main actors and beneficiaries of innovation processes.
Through an intense, participatory set of activities we will try to give answers to questions such as:
Additionally, during the Open Innovation Seminar, on November 25th, we will:

AOS, Art is Open Source, is an international informal network exploring the mutation of human beings with the wide and ubiquitous accessibility and availability of digital technologies and networks.
We move across arts and sciences, using technology, communication, performance, art and design, to instantiate emotional actions and processes that are able to expose the dynamics of our contemporary world.
We do this in academic, artistic, business and activist domains and, actually, we are focused on moving fluidly among each of these spaces.
