I+C+i #5 // 2.0: from interaction to co-creation

In 2010, the I+C+i session Institutions 2.0 reflected on the promise and dilemmas of 2.0 philosophies in cultural institutions and their potential as a driving force for change in cultural dynamics in general. This session will centre on the design, practical learning and case studies of participatory processes of varying degrees: from interaction with what used to be called “the public” to co-creation.


 Wednesday 14 September

10 a.m.-2 p.m. // Workshop: “Collaborative design for cultural institutions” (Part 1) Facilitators: Irene Lapuente, Ramon Sangüesa
