October 24th, 2011Conference
At the Incubate DIY conference 2011, English punk legend Steve Ignorant was interviewed by writer and BBC commentator John Robb. John Robb writes for The Observer, The Guardian and The Independent and will interview Ignorant about DIY, Crass’ and Ignorant’s aesthetic and his autobiography The Rest is Propaganda.
In 1977 Ignorant co-founded, together with Penny Rimbaud, the anarcho-punk band Crass. With Crass, Steve Ignorant was one of the driving forces of the Do-it-yourself movement, and therefore a major influence on the punk movement. Crass was one of the first bands to arrange their own concerts and record sales without interference from the music industry and asked fans to make their own merchandise.Tags: 2011, conference, crass, diy, Festival, incubate, interview, john robb, punk, steve ignorant, the rest is propaganda, tilburg

Incubate festival gives its visitors the chance to take part in the program itself. During Open Source Arts visitors can show their own art, make their own radio program, show their own films and perform their own choreographies. Starting today, anyone can hand in material for the radio station, which will then be broadcasted during the festival between 11 and 18 September 2011.
For the first time, Incubate gives its visitors the opportunity to stand in the shoes of the promoters and the curators. Beside the broad program with many cutting-edge artists that Incubate offers, the public can express its own art form and add it to the festival in the Open Source Arts program. This is part of the discussion what the visitor should or could contribute to a cultural event. Incubate previously opened up
its business plan to the public on the Internet,
and let the visitors choose what they wanted to pay for a conference on piracy.
The Incubate Open Source program consists of the following events:
- Open source expo
- Open source radio
- Open source film program
- “Space that must be filled” (dance)

On September 12, Charles Leadbeater opened
the Incubate festival week with a lecture on social innovation and the role the arts can play in this process. What’s the role of a changing arts practice in a changing society? Watch Charles Leadbeater”s innovation lecture above.
Charles Leadbeater is a
leading authority on innovation and creativity. He is Tony
Blair”s favorite corporate thinker. He has advised companies, cities and governments on innovation strategy and drew on that experience in writing his latest book We-think: the power of mass creativity. This book charts the rise of mass, participative approaches to innovation from science and open source software, to computer games and political campaigning.
After Charles’ keynote lecture, a panel of experts from the fields of arts, economy and politics took place. The panelists in the discussion were Wim van de Donk, Dick Rijken, Bas van Heur and Wout Withagen. Roy van Dalm moderated the panel. Watch the panel discussion below.
