27 Commons institutions, 1 global meetupPosted by Stephanie Fysh in News
Today in the Flickr Commons group, the Powerhouse Museum’s Paula Bray announced Common Ground, an international celebration of the Commons to be held at Commons institutions, October 2-3, with a slideshow of Commons photos selected by you and me, the Commons community.
What is Common Ground?
Common Ground is a global meet up celebrating the Commons on Flickr to be held by as many of the institutions in the Commons. This will consist of a projection onto the participating institutions building at night (or suitable day-time location) using a slideshow of content from the Commons on Flickr accounts that is curated by you, our community. This will be hosted on the weekend of 2nd – 3rd October across the globe (albeit time-differences). Making the Flickr Commons go live through a connected slideshow. You will get to meet the staff behind the Commons and we will get to know you.
So book that date – October 2-3, 2009 – and keep your eyes on this topic for announcements from Commons institutions that will be hosting Common Ground gatherings.
