Public Presentation Of The #P2Pvalue Project

The public presentation of the P2Pvalue project will take place on Wednesday, January 22nd at the CCCB in Barcelona in an event which aims to encourage debate and community participation, extending an invitation to participate in the project and meet up with local P2P communities.

How does value work in emerging organisational forms? What conditions favour collaborative production? What distinguishes the commons from traditional hierarchical and commercial organisations?

Commons based peer production is an emerging and innovative production model in which the creative energy of large numbers of citizens is coordinated, usually through a digital platform, outside of the parameters of the traditionally hierarchical and mercantil organisation resulting in the public provision of commons resources. Some well-known examples are Linux, Wikipedia, Open Street Map and SETI.

Recently there has been an expansion to other areas of activity, such as citizen science, product design, management of common spaces and open data sources. The P2Pvalue project is mapping the diffusion and hybridization of peer production and investigating the conditions which favour collaborative creation and the logic of value of these emerging forms. The research results will be used to develop a digital platform based on decentralized architecture and the design of public policies that promote the commons.

The presentation will kick off at 18:00 with a roundtable discussion with Mayo Fuster Morell, Primavera de Filippi, Adam Arvidsson, Samer Hassan, moderated by Marco Berlinguer, featuring contributions from local P2P/Commons communities, in which the core ideas behind the project will be discussed and the first reflections and tools will be presented.

This will be followed by a debate on the issues raised by the roundtable featuring project participants, members of the P2Pvalue Stakeholder Board and people from the P2P/Commons communities.

At 21:00 the conversation will continue in the CCCB bar for a networking meetup and the presentation of the Directory of Collaborative Production.

Event organised by P2Pvalue project (funded by European Commission CAPS), and P2PFoundation with the support of CCCB. The networking meet-up is organised in collaboration with the Spanish Chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation.
