OpenVillage Festival | Bruxelles/Brussel | donderdag, 19. oktober 2017

A participant-built festival dedicated to bringing together existing projects into a demo of a new health and social care system powered by open source, community driven solutions.
The festival paves the way for the upcoming #OpenVillage - a network of community houses for living and working together, while leading healthy lives.

What’s in it for you?

+ New contacts, opportunities and deep understanding.
+ Access to high quality sessions contributed by a community of people delivering ambitious care services when healthcare and welfare systems fail.
+ A stake in an ambitious new venture: A community property for permanently affordable living and working together (Edgeryders Reef)

PROGRAM AND KEY THEMES:

*Open Science and Citizen Science for more inclusive healthcare*
How are people all over the world using open knowledge, open source hardware and software solutions to meet care needs? What are we learning about citizens helping advance groundbreaking research?

*Architectures of Love: Creating the conditions for open care*
We are collecting deep insights to illuminate the interplay between policy and culture (as in ways of doing things). How do we design communities and organisations that are care-full, and promote health and flourishing for greater impact?

*Living and working well together*
Learning from physical community spaces: how do others design the space, its financing model, and collective activities – from business to fitness, personal development, mental wellbeing. How do we build sustainable spaces? How to prioritize reciprocal support, trust and a spirit of generosity, rather than transactional relationships?
