two events are proposed by TransforMap during the OSCE Days:
I submitted as transition>>lab with Lars Zimmermann an event to organize a mapping the urban commons bike tour as part of two events in early June in Berlin:
- http://www.makecity.berlin/: architecture festival with whom we have contacts and focused this year around urban commons
- http://osced2015.org/: Open Source Circular Economy Days (organized by Lars)
The event was accepted. Here is the decription (MakeCity_Map_Jam_OSCEDays_TransitionLab.pdf) (500.1 KB) .
Method: I’ll provide an input on the theme of urban commons, why mapping, and I plan to use the needs and modes of interaction categories from the taxonomy to help people categorize what they map. It will will start at 11AM at the Thinkfarm and will end up in another (yet unknown) location at 18:00. I plan to get people discuss the question of how good it is to make things visible: ie. what benefits but also threats there are to making the commons visible on a map.
@wellemut: interested? any of your friends at KarteVonMorgen? That would go at facilitating map jam(s) offline…
@almereyda on: interest to contribute/take part? I would like to make a print-out of the BerlinKarte for participants. I would like to change the GartenKarte to something like “Map the Urban Commons - A contribution to TransforMap”? Would you have the editable (svg?) file then? Severin pointed me to the FU (“im zedat”) for the cheap print outs, but I would need you to get access to the FU…
@Silke and others: Could we get some money to pay for map print outs?
