The Problem with Participation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In settings where vulnerable people live (both in the U.S. and developing world) and where non-profits organizations work are often socially, culturally, and economically distant from environments like the OKFestival where we (who are largely privileged) gather to discuss terms like "open" and "access." The Problem With Participation will explore how the term “open” brings with it three fundamental challenges for people who live and operate outside of the "open knowledge" bubble: capacity, resources (including time), and privacy. Sessions participants will discuss and explore ideas on how to make "open" more "accessible."
