Building a European Cultural Backbone

Live aus dem Wissensturm


A significant part of public debate takes place today on a few commercial online platforms, whereby the conditions and forms of free expression are made dependent solely on a market-based logic and on the commercial business models of the platform operators.

Since no real democratic discourse can take place under such conditions, it is necessary to create independent, not-for-profit infrastructures and democratic media spaces (“Public Open Spaces”) that enable and promote public debates and opinion-forming under conditions geared to the common good.

Thus we invite to a series of events in Linz, Austria to explore and expand technology for community based exchange and publication.
With collaborative hacking projects we want to push forward a common base for a European Cultural Backbone for community media and their surrounding media spheres.

Parts of the event will be streamed live online due to the very friendly support by CCC – Chaos Computer Club Germany.
