Bank of Common Knowledge (BCC)

A project

Courses and workshops + Festivals


What would you like to be able to do but have never found someone to explain it to you? How many things are you sufficiently expert in to be able to teach them to someone else? Do you know someone who knows or does something valuable, intriguing or special? Can you use your P2P not just to share and consume knowledge, but also to produce and swap it?


BCC is a pilot project on the exchange economy, an initiative to make the most of and to collectively index the new, self-generated knowledge that has emerged as a result of the widespread mastery of new technology and digital networks.

BCC is a training ground for prosumers (producers - consumers), a field of collective action based on the transfer of knowledge and mutual education, a laboratory for conducting experiments with citizenship and new ways of producing, learning and involvement.

BCC combines the organisation of activities in an open modular space divided into capsules of information, in which experiences in sharing are presented, with workshops, free consultations with experts, the dissemination of audio-visual productions and live demos, and the practical desire to share information, tools and applied knowledge that take the form of a series of handbooks on urban and digital survival.
