Today we introduce you to a project that we’ve been developing, A Conversation. It is a project, original idea and production by OPEN THIS END that lacasinegra is directing and designing with Domenico Di Siena and Think Commons as consultant. We start, with this, a new and ambitious challenge. With this project we’re going to try the creation of an open and participative discussion space were the thinking stops being something static and elitist, to become a dynamic exercise. Active thinking, activist thinking, thinking as an energy source and as the last resource that political institutions cannot cut.
So, beginning September 19th we will propose debates with well-known artists, philosophers, filmmakers and activists that would be broadcasted in Live Streaming. We will also put together the necessary tools to make the debate not only public but interactive and that any person interested in pushing forward this way of dynamic thinking can do it. Our main challenge through this initiative is to show that another way of thinking is possible and the academic vertical structure is not the only one.
We wait for you in our first conversation on September 19th ar 19PM with the philosopher Pierre Lévy. In the meantime we expect your suggestions about the website and the project itself. Welcome to A Conversation.
