TALK: Sourcefabric AKA Douglas Arellanes
Friday, March 27, 2015, 6-8pm
ISIS Arts hosted a talk as part of their European project CORNERS. We were joined by the co-founder of Sourcefabric, Douglas Arellanes. Douglas talked about some of the projects Sourcefabric has worked on in its five years of existence as well as introducing the software platforms they have created.
Sourcefabric is a non-profit organisation, based in Prague, working throughout the world to develop technology tools for independent media organisations.
CORNERS artists and ISIS Arts are working with Sourcefabric and media artist and curator Dominic Smith to develop an interactive, collaborative online platform called ‘CORNERS Live’. They will tell you more about our exciting plans.
‘CORNERS Live’ will extend the lives of CORNERS artists’ creations online and will enable them to develop their skills to work in a digital environment. The platform will allow cultural enthusiasts to share an online space with our artists and will encourage them to participate and contribute to our creative programme.
CORNERS is a platform for artists and audiences designed and driven by cultural organisations at the edges of Europe. We are developing CORNERS co-creations across border of artistic disciplines with strong cross-cultural dimensions. Our task is to communicate with different audiences from 10 countries across Europe, regardless of language and cultural barriers, but at the same time to bring local stories from one corner of Europe to another.
ISIS Arts is working alongside regional partners, mima (Middlesbrough) and Bait (South East Northumberland). CORNERS has received financial support from the European Commission’s Creative Europe Fund (ECEFF) and Arts Council England.
