Open – this simple word contains the seeds for a slow and silent revolution. It stands for a complete transformation of society as we know it. In fact, this transition has already started: Open Source Software altered some fundamental economic beliefs. This transformation comes in many shapes and ideas: Open Source, Open Democracy, Open Knowledge, Open Space, Open University…

To celebrate the occasion of opening the Open University of the Arts, Helsinki we invite you to an OPEN BINGO afternoon. In a playful setting we will map, analyze and discuss the various movements, ideas and activities that are falling under the OPEN label. Together we will find out, how those ideas may affect our society, our daily lives, and the way we produce and distribute art and culture. Players will learn mostly from each others, but will also be able to consult jokers for support – the jokers being a number of prominent protagonists of the open movement in Finland: Sanna Hirvonen (Open Glam & Kiasma), Laura Sillanpää, (Open Knowledge Finland), Juan Duarte (Pixelache). We designed the Open Bingo with YKON . Prizes guaranteed!

Saturday 14.11.2015  1-4pm at Exhibition Laboratory, Merimiehenkatu 36 C, Helsinki, inner yard. Free entry!
