Digital Culture Arena

Dialogue and conflict. Dialogue is conflict. Democracy. New technologies and not so new visions. The impact on regulation, legislation, management, politics. Slow processing of a quick reality. What is yet to come? What do we want to build? Brazil is a pioneer country in terms of looking at the internet as a free territory. Will the State continue to be the tool used to deepen this idea? Or is the State going to criminalize the movement? The movements. Networked articulations, transitory or definitive, horizontal and plural. Dialogue and Conflict. Direct Democracy.

This space, with around forty seats, will host the most current debates regarding the national and international scenery. Discussions proposed by the civil society and the government will take place here. A greek amphitheatre that will host only the voices of the (un)happy. All of it broadcasted live.

Digital Culture Networks

A culture made from networks articulated using the technologies of their time. The contemporary culture doesn’t like rigid hierarchies or vertical control. It’s not top to bottom. It’s bottom up. From the basis to the centre. From the peripheries to peripheries. From one place to everywhere. From everywhere to everywhere. From everyone to everyone. Decentralization. Free architecture and protocols. Conversation. Meetings that make virtual articulations stronger. May the different networks meet in one place.

This circus tent, with around a hundred seats, will be occupied by meetings of different networks that are articulated through the social network The activities will be developed by their proponents and open to the public.
