Adopt a session during the weekend
You are happily invited to the third Knowledge Lab, following on from two successful and friendly anticapitalist gatherings: “Making Global Civil Society” (November 05) and "(Hack the Knowledge Lab: Technology, Creativity, Social Organisation" (February 06). Like the past two, Who Cares? is hosted at and with the support of the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) at Lancaster University.
This page offers a basic structure/content for the upcoming (third) knowledgelab in June/July - An open weekend gathering for people concerned about themselves, each other and the world we live in.
The planning and organisation of this event is now happening both on this wiki and on a mailing list, which we encourage you to subscribe to: http://lists.aktivix.org/mailman/listinfo/knowledgelab See the archives for prior postings.
The mailing list grew out of the first KnowledgeLab weekend in November. During that weekend, it was strongly felt that we should be more experimental with the general format of the upcoming "Hacklab", at the very least radically reduce the number of presentations, and lengthen the discussion time available for each topic. Following the exploration of these changes, Who Cares? will focus on a small number of sessions allowing for in-depth exploration of challenging topics.
Continuing the experimental Knowledge Lab project, this weekend will be a conference without presentations or key note speeches. The aim is to bring together a variety of people - waged and unwaged thinkers, students, activists, care workers- from all over the world for intense discussion sessions, play time and experiential learning.
