Near Future Design and Ubiquitous Commons at Wired NextFest

Join us in Milan for Wired’s NextFest.

Art is Open Source, Nefula and Ubiquitous Commons will be there for an exploration on the implications of technologies and networks on our near-future lives.

On May 24th at 10:30 in the Giardini Porta Venezia Nefula will hold a Near Future Design workshop. This 6 hours long, hands-on, full immersion workshop will allow all the participants to move through the tensions and conflicts of the present, to imagine and design possibilistic future concepts, which will be designed as complex transmedia narratives.

The workshop will be held by Nefula’s Oriana Persico, Salvatore Iaconesi, Tommaso Cappelletti, Alice Meniconi and Mirko Balducci.

Access to the workshop is open: register here and come early if you want to make sure to join in.

On May 23rd at 11:30 at the WNF Audi Dome we will hold a talk and conversation about the Ubiquitous Commons: the commons in the era of ubiquitous technologies.

We will present the Ubiquitous Commons project, introduce the technological and legal toolkits which we are preparing, together with a wide network of researchers, lawyers, hackers, institutions and organizations, to re-appropriate our data and create positive, constructive processes for its sharing and common management.

This will be a talk, but also (and most important) a conversation. Everyone is invited to browse through the documentation and information about the Ubiquitous Commons, and to participate actively to the conversation.

All the events are found within the main area of the Wired NextFest festival, in the Giardini Indro Montanelli, Corso Venezia, 55, in Milan (take the underground MM Palestro stop). See a map here.
