Open Publishing and Visual Free Culture 17.9.
This OK Festival satellite event focuses on the practice of open (media) publishing and visual free culture. It offers an introduction, consultation, and discussion period for local and regional non-profit organisations to learn more about the ins and outs of open media publishing, from the perspective of graphic design, illustration, booksprints, electronic and physical publishing formats, and licensing perspectives.

Aleksander Erkalovic (Booktype/Booki/FLOSS Manuals) and Mushon Zer-Aviv (Booki/Wikipedia Illustrated) are invited from Zagreb and Tel-Aviv respectively, to make 2 x 30 min presentations, one focusing on a publishing platform (Booktype/Booki) and the other from the perspective of a graphic/web designer and booksprint author.

Following this introduction, the remaining time will be allocated for a Q and A or consulation period with up to 4 non-profit organisations who briefly present their case, to be discussed by those attending, with advice from invited guests. If you are interested to one of the organisations present as consultees, contact andrew [-at-] pixelahe.ac

The event is organised as a collaboration between Pixelache Helsinki (Pixelversity educational programme) and m-cult.
