We are glad to invite you to sign up for the Media Architecture Biennale (MAB20) Workshop that we are co-organizing: The City as a License: Design, Rights and Civics in a Blockchain Society. The goal of this workshop is to work towards a special issue / edited volume on the theme of The City as a License: Design, Rights and Civics in a Blockchain Society. We seek written and visual contributions that explore the opportunities and challenges as well as actual experiments and designs of Digital Ledger Technologies in civic contexts, from a perspective of urban governance, social justice and the ‘right to the city’.
Prospective participants are invited to send in an abstract of around 500 words describing their envisioned contribution to the special issue.
- Deadline for submissions is May 15th.
- Notification of selected abstracts: June 1st.
The workshop will take place online. Selections will be made by the organising committee / editors of the publication.
Submissions are to be made through easychair.
This workshop is organized by Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences Civic Interaction Design Research Group & Institute of Network Cultures (Martijn de Waal, Gabriele Ferri & Inte Gloerich); Institute for Design Informatics, University of Edinburgh (John Vines & Chris Elsden).
