LIVERPOOL TO HOST _OPEN SOURCE CITY MICRO- FESTIVAL

20th to 22nd June 2008

A micro-festival of open source practice in the production of media art
and music

folly and SoundNetwork are kicking off the Summer with an exciting
collaboration bringing a micro-festival of art and music to Liverpool,
as part of the European Capital of Culture.

Liverpool has a strong history of doing innovative things with
electricity, from the birth of the power grid (Sebastian Ferranti) to
the early computer games industry (Psygnosis, Ocean, and ZTT). Liverpool
also has a formidable musical legacy inevitably centred around the pop
phenomenon of The Beatles but which spans every musical genre from
classical to electro.

Open Source City tips its hat to Liverpool's pioneering spirit by
offering a programme of art, workshops, masterclasses, talks and
concerts that shed light on the growing impact of Free/Libre Open Source
Software on the creative practices of today, in particular in media art
and music.

"FLOSS" offers opportunities to users, and developers at every skill
level to participate in the creative process, starting from the writing
of code all the way up to the final mix of your masterpiece. These are
tools that have the power to bring people together through creativity,
collaboration, knowledge sharing and, importantly, technology. So, how
will Open Source play a part in the music and art scenes of the future?
Maybe the answer lies in your hands....take part.

Artists and speakers involved include goto10, Access Space, Polytechnic,
Simon Blackmore, Tom Chance, MediaShed and 64 Studio... Talks include
"The role of FOSS in urban regeneration" and a brief philosophical tour
of "Copyright and Freedom".  The hub of the festival is at Mello Mello
in the heart of Liverpool's creative quarter; 40-42 Slater St, Liverpool
L1 4BX.

To view the whole programme for the festival, please download the pdf
Festival Programme, and to book a paid workshop, download the workshop
booking form. Both available from folly's website at

Open Source City is a Liverpool European Capital of Culture Commission -
a micro-festival of open source practice in media art and music
presented by folly and SoundNetwork.

A Cultural Commission for Liverpool 2008 European Capital of Culture.
Supported by Arts Council England and P H Holt Trust.
