5 posibles actividades para un makerspace en una biblioteca — Cultura del hacer

Este programa es una especie de eco distante de un programa exitoso de autores residentes, salvo que esta vez entre los criterios de selección está la comodidad con la que el artista pueda trabajar con tecnología, y el requisito de contar con talentos innovadores, habilidades únicas e ideas frescas. Siguiendo la misión de generar ideas para cultivar una comunidad creativa y dinámica, la IPL ha puesto la prioridad en celebrar la integridad de la expresión artística de todas las culturas, promoviendo la excelencia artística y trabajando para aumentar el reconocimiento y participación del público en las artes.


Institute for the Future of the Book. Mira que te lo tengo dicho: Juan Cruz. The Future of Archives is Participatory: Archives as Platform, or A New Mission for Archives.

The Future of Archives is Participatory: Archives as Platform, or A New Mission for Archives

It’s also similar to the talk I gave in Oslo a few weeks ago at the #arkividag conference. While I also made a recording of it as a backup, since I have it all more or less written out I thought I would post it here too. (I’ve inserted a few images from my presentation but not all the transitional slides or ones that are just repeating things in the text or showing screenshots.) There are some interesting ideas in it, I think, and I’m sure some readers will have comments and additional food for thought. Please remember, it’s a talk, not a journal article. Thank you. The context for my understanding of the archival enterprise is, naturally, a primarily American one—and specifically a U.S. In these remarks, I will first discuss briefly a view on the changes to what I call the business model of archives.
