Call for presentation for the "Libre Culture and Art" topic of the 10th Libre Software Meeting (Nantes, France, July 2009)

Traduction(s) de cet article : français Español

Libre Culture and Art :

Beyond software, the "Libre" concept has reached other types of contents.

The development of transverse medias, the shake-up of consumption patterns, the lack of reactivity from the "classic" distribution agents in front of these metamorphoses... so many parameters which urge the artists to think about their creation and distribution approaches. The "Libre" model, which is tried more and more thanks to the software, attracts creators. What are their motivations ? What are the influences on their artistic activity, on their creation approach ?

Much more than personal initiatives of artists, it is a reflection on the sharing and the valuation of the culture in the contemporary context which is to be led.

This topic proposes the discovery of the contents (sound, photo, literature, cinema) and a reflection, through conferences, discussions and workshops, on the way the "Libre" model can help in the cultural enrichment thanks to the community sharing.

"The culture is made in pubs, not in Beaubourg." (Louis Chevalier)
