OpenDesignCity Market no.2, Saturday, 18th Sept. 2010, 14h-18h
Come to Open Design City, make your own market and produce your own products. If you want you can just browse and buy, but if you wish our stall holders will provide you with the knowledge and opportunity to produce your own custom products made by you for that truly personal flavour. This happened on our first market. The second one will be even better! Don't miss. There is a rumor going around that there will be a big party in the betahaus cafe the same evening...

"Talk to me about: Why every creative city needs a FabLab", Thursday, 16th September, 19h-21h
21t century’s metropoles are full of creative workers that produce not only with their heads but also with their hands. Innovation needs a place where it can be tested and an inspiring environment where it can flourish. Shouldn't every city provide their citizens with fully interconnected and equipped spaces where they can network and get their stuff done? We have invited decision makers and actors from Lisbon, Amsterdam and Berlin to debate on why every creative city needs FabLabs- because the 'if' is not a question anymore. Join us and have a voice!

Julie Morel and Camille Louis are presenting us a new discussion device who enables people from interdisciplinary backgrounds to discuss in different constellations about the same topic. The results of the conversation in the small rounds are being summarized and visualized in real time on a screen where everybody can follow the development at the other tables. We will test this interactive discussion tool proposed by the kom.post collective with a group of international artists and coworker about a theme proposed by the philosopher Camille Louis.
