Commonground – waiting for Maker Faire Rome

We work best when we are connected. Not only from technology but from shared value, ideas and goals.

Commonground celebrates the ‘connected’ worlds, the communities of changemakers that are changing the scenarios in which we live and activating social change, the way in which traditional organizations converge with such communities and, together, manage to generate new, fluid models and solutions that are proving to be effective in pushing the world ‘ahead’.

Commonground anticipates Maker Faire Rome and shows how the Faire, ten years after its arrival in Italy, has changed the way we look at, and we feel about, innovation.

Ostiense gazometer, pav. 30 (entrance from via Ostiense 72)

The future of culture is common

What does ‘culture’ mean today and what can represent the ‘commonground’ that the cultural industry needs? The session develops and stimulates reasoning on the innovation mindset in the cultural field and the impact it can have on the perceived value of culture and on the choices of use.

What would happen if we began to consider innovation as a common good, and what would it entail to treat culture and cultural production in this light?

These are just some of the many questions that will be explored in this session.

What is innovation, if not a way to keep us together? Together with Italian and international guests, we will discuss of ‘innovation mindset’: how to enable it, nourish it and let it flourish in the cultural industry – for the common good, precisely.
