Wikpolis. Cartographies and collective creation of the social space
One contemporary experience that has clearly caused great changes in the social, political and cultural contexts is the practice of building tools and computer technologies based on open source. A mechanism based on the sharing of results and processes, where the achievements of a group or an individual are also starting points for others. A succession of connected elements mixing creativity, skills and material production, built and consumed through a shared experience. One element allowing the generation of content, based on collective experience, is the wiki. A wiki is a website which allows creating and editing any number of web pages connected to each other, sharing a common language and allowing access to a control group. From this perspective, the construction of tools, tactics and collective practices applied in the context of the city, will be the subject to be discussed in the forum and project workshops in this edition of Quam 2011. Wikpolis translates the possibility of meeting and proposing projects focusing on this option of the node to the context of space and the policies that regulate it, providing with the opportunity to create new shared strategies for modifying social and cultural context.
