speeches at the DIY Conference, we’ll also have the Dutch premiere of the documentary, a film about hope, fear and digital culture. The question that PressPausePlay addresses: does democratized culture mean better art, film, music and literature? Is it cultural democracy or mediocrity? The film contains interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era like Seth Godin, Moby, Andrew Keen, Sean Parker and Bill Drummond.
After the screening of the film, we’ll do a panel with the makers of the film (Philip Marthinsen, producer of PressPausePlay and Dwight Witherspoon of Ericsson Sweden, who made the film possible). Also Arnold de Boer, since long the guy behind Zea and since two and a half years singer and guitarist in The Ex will take seat in the panel. Zea is self made and the way of doing may be best described as grass-roots, as is The Ex. The panel will be moderated by Erwin Blom.
The last addition to the panel is hip-hop and electronica producer Daedelus (a.o. Ninja Tune, Stones Throw, Brainfeeder and Warp). At the panel, Daedelus will share his
insights in the topics addressed by the film. During the Incubate festival, he will work with students from the Fontys Rock Academy and the Conservatory in Tilburg as well
as do a DJ set on Friday evening.
We’re really pleased to have Daedelus participate in the conference. Catch the whole program of the conference here. Pay What You Want-tickets for the conference are still available.

After the videos of Charles Leadbeater at Incubate Festival 2010 and Matt Mason”s keynote at the Incubate Pirate Conference, here is the video for the panel discussion following Matt Mason”s keynote speech at the Incubate Pirate Conference.
The Pirate Conference offered reflection on the comprehensive piracy-program of Incubate Festival and on the value of creation in society. What do artists think about the current state of issues? How can they best react to the current operation of copyright? What strategies, tactics and interventions can be used? How do
we shape creativity and innovation as a society, and what could businesses learn from these tactics?

Innovation is a keyword at
w.incubate.org/2010/” target=”_blank”>Incubate. Therefore Incubate and BKKC will organize the Incubate Innovation Lecture 2010, which will take place in De NWE Vorst on September 12. We’re very honored that Charles Leadbeater will hold this year’s lecture.
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.
In 2005 Charles was ranked by management consultancy Accenture as one of the top management thinkers in the world. He advised a wide range of organizations including the BBC, Vodafone, Microsoft, Ericsson, Channel Four Television and the Royal Shakespeare Company. As an associate editor of the Independent he helped Helen Fielding devise Bridget Jones”s Diary. He wrote the first British report on the rise of social entrepreneurship, which has since become a global movement. His report on the potential for the web to generate social change led to the creation of the Social Innovation Camp movement.
Brabant Stad has the ambition to become cultural capital in 2018. To become cultural capital, cities also have to invest in innovation. Whereas, for instance, the Eindhoven region emphasizes technological innovations, Tilburg wants to invest more in social innovation as part
of this ambition.
The web is creating a more open, participative and collaborative approach to culture. In his keynote, Mr. Leadbeater will focus on the role the arts can play in this social innovation process. What’s the role of a changing arts practice in a changing society?
After Charles’ keynote lecture, a panel of experts from the fields of arts, economy and politics will take place. The panelists in the discussion are Wim van de Donk, Dick Rijken, Bas van Heur and Wout Withagen.Tags: Charles Leadbeater, incubate, lecture, panel, social innovation, we-think
