Furtherfield.org: Collaboration and Freedom - The World of Free and Open Source Art
Furtherfield.org collective have recently curated and published on P2P Foundation wiki an excellent collection of artworks, texts and resources about freedom and openness in the arts, in the age of the Internet.



"Freedom to collaborate – to use, modify and redistribute ideas, artworks, experiences, media and tools. Openness to the ideas and contributions of others, and new ways of organising and making decisions together. This non exhaustive collection is intended to inspire, inform and enable people to apply peer-to-peer principles for making things and getting organised together. We hope that all art lovers, makers, thinkers, organisers and strategists will find something for them from this set of imaginative, communitarian and dynamic contemporary practices."

This collection was produced by Furtherfield, commissioned by Arts Council England for Thinking Digital, in 2011. Curated by Ruth Catlow and Marc Garrett with additional texts by Charlotte Frost and Rob Myers.

For those interested further in Ruth Catlow's experience of recent ISEA seminar events that she hosted and attended, read the following report Re-rooting digital culture at ISEA 2011.
