OV Banner OpenCare

OpenVillage is a participant-built festival dedicated to bringing together existing projects into a demo of a new care system powered by open source, community driven solutions. We will imagine and enact the future of care together. 

What’s in it for you: New contacts, opportunities and deep understanding. Access to our Fellowship Program. A stake in an ambitious new venture: community property for permanently affordable living and working together.

Join the conversation! Check out ongoing discussions below and introduce yourself in a new post or by commenting any of the ones already active. You can also drop in our weekly online community gatherings on Wednesdays at 18:00 CET here or contact community@edgeryders.eu

[Event launch] Follow up with OpenandChange partners

While we are adding final touches to the OpenVillage launch, we plan a personalized message to our partners that includes:

1) Save the Date and register for OpenVillage
2) Take on Communication and Business modeling (?) roles in preparation for it: 5 memberships available (opencall upcoming)
3) Take on Curation role: Fellowships (see main menu link)
4) Maker Residency in Milano (see main menu link)

These are the concrete opportunities for continuing the work which has been done in openandchange.
Am I missing something?

Proposed text for launch of Reef track

A few years ago we started paying close attention to care. Available, affordable health and social care was – and still is – unavailable. Not for some unknown person in some distant land, either. For friends and family members, people in our communities, right here. Something had to be done.

As part of the preparation and increasing the buzz for the OpenVillage event we would like to invite everyone to a crowdstorm, the @edgeryders alternative to a press conference on social media: an online event at a set date and time.

OpenVillage theme: citizen science in care

Some ideas for a theme at the OpenVillage event, work in progress.

I’d like to involve projects that are dedicated to citizen science in care. I think one interesting question to explore is ‘How do we solve resource intensive and technically complex issues in care as communities?’. I'd involve projects with different angles to have diversity, a broader view and hopefully validate observations/lessons. I see Open Insulin playing a big role in the theme as it combines potential insights on many aspects.

Projects that would fit into this theme:

Open Call for Cities and Regions

We will imagine and enact the future of care together.

What is it: A 3-day conference and expo on the topic of health and social innovations by communities. The event showcases their ingenious solutions to real-world problems through a process that encourages and highlights collaboration and sharing.

Fellowship Program

[paid opportunity] Fellowships for community members to lead curation, communication and engagement for the OpenCare PopUp Village!

We believe that the future of health and social care is community-based and participatory. We are committed to the idea that care should not necessarily be handed down from institutions to the people but can emerge organically from the people according to their needs.

Add Visual Materials Here

This is a wiki where participants can post visual communication materials to help spread the word about the event and their contributions to it. Feel free to make new versions of the material on this wiki. Good to know: there is a visual guide for the opencare research project where you will find logos, colour codes, videos etc. We also have a repository of animations which we can share on agreement that they are properly credited when used.

organising an event within an event

We've considered organizing our Pop-Up Village within an existing event this year (we as Nadia, Noemi, me). After discussing it, the pros seemed obvious: less organizational hurdle and new opportunities to network for us, while we can bring on board a great event, strong community, our work, and resources. And we don't multiply similar events,

Similar to previous community events we're organising the conference around tracks which represent different perspectives and angles by which to understand and build upon the overall concept of open care. To understand why we care about open care, read here.

We will have three tracks: This year we've invited a number of experts to help with curating the tracks

Introduction

The openvillage is modelled on the coral reef.  Reefs are a connective layer that consists of physical structures in different places built by small entities embedded in water. These “rainforests of the sea” are some of the most diverse ecosystems on earth. They flourish in ocean waters that provide few nutrients. What makes coral reefs especially interesting as a model are two attributes:
