Idea Camp 2015: Day to day compilation videos

ECF's second Idea Camp took place from 23 to 25 September 2015 in Botkyrka, Sweden. This year’s theme “Build the City” applied the principles and ethics of the commons. The Idea Camp explored how citizens and communities can get directly involved in participatory democratic processes that shape and govern our cities.

The Media Lab (ZEMOS98, Canan Marasligil, Charlie Tims and the ECF Labs team) has documented the Idea Camp through a variety of audiovisual material you can all find compiled in the Build the City: Online Resources on ECF Labs.

You can watch a day to day video compilation of the Idea Camp below.

I am a freelance writer, literary translator, editor and curator based in Amsterdam. I work internationally on a variety of literary and cultural projects. My primary interest is in challenging official narratives and advocating freedom of expression through different creative processes, using various media, online and offline. I have worked with cultural organisations and have participated in residencies: as translator-in-
residence at the Free Word Centre in London (2013); as a cultural journalist at WAAW in Senegal (2015); and most recently at Copenhagen University to work on my project City in Translation, looking at stories behind the multilingual expressions throughout cities.
I work closely with ECF on curating their online presence, including website, eZine and social media, as well as with MitOSt in Berlin on the Tandem Cultural Exchange programme and as literature curator with Europalia International Arts Festival in Brussels. More on: cananmarasligil.net
