Acta vs Hackta
The (D’)Evolution Summit was a civil society meeting to open the minds of the European Community Ministers of Culture, who had gathered in Barcelona for an Informal Meeting in the framework of the Spanish Presidency of the European Union.
On March 30 and 31 the Ministers of Culture of the 27 European Union member states brought to a close the European Forum for Cultural Industries.
Th€ir focu$ was cl€ar.
So was ours: /(D') EVOLUTION SUMMIT, The Returns of Culture./
Although we weren’t invited to the official event, the creative community and civil society organised three days of activities to show our proposed culture for the digital era: a model of culture that benefits everybody – citizens and creators – a model that stimulates creativity and not just profit, and, above all, one that does not attack the Internet.
We invited Ministers, participants attending the Forum of Cultural Industries, the media and anybody who wanted to come, to participate in the (D') Evolution Summit.
