Siiwa have a discussion on Social Entrepreneurship and Social Enterprise space. The format will be a 15 – 20 min talk, some questions then meeting other social entrepreneurs and people doing great stuff around Perth and WA.
In a hyperconnected world, innovation is happening at a quicker rate and beyond the boundaries of physical spaces. The best of innovation will happen at the convergences of people, resources and institutional support. The traditional structure of institution will become obsolete and innovation will not be led by those we traditionally view as “geniuses”.
So what does this mean for social entrepreneurs and social innovation? How can we harness this hyperconnectedness for social good and social change, and more importantly, how can we accelerate social innovation in a rapidly changing, hyperconnected economy?
A Festival of Locative Media and Urban Community
Recent exhibitions, festivals and conferences across the US and in Europe have taken wireless networks, public space, locative media and urban environments as sites of intervention, creativity, and critique. Formulated within the emerging context of networked urbanism and mobile media, City Centered: A Festival of Locative Media and Urban Community will focus upon dynamics of the shifting, locative, cartographic and social space of the city. It is organized by educational, arts, community-based and civic organizations and asks how locative media can act as a platform and venue for community-led expression.
