*A reality check on the creative industries*

*Talks, Discussions, Art, Workshops, Performances*

*20-21 November 2014*


*The Institute of Network Cultures presents MYCREATIVITY SWEATSHOP -- an
international symposium where artists, scholars and activists critically
probe the conditions of creative production in today’s economy. Two days of
panels, performances, discussions and workshops will open a space to focus
on the consequences of global creative industries policy, to discuss
alternatives and to develop new paths for both survival and subversion.*

In many countries creative industries policy is radically reshaping the
conditions of creative production. Simultaneously, new technologies are
increasingly turning creative processes into a function of big data
streams, algorithms and digital scalability. This raises many questions:
what are the new physical, technological and aesthetic spaces of subversion
and critique? How do creative industry policy and the big data economies
influence and shape the idea of artistic autonomy? And, as the ‘creative’
city mutates into the ‘smart’ city, what are appropriate tactics and
strategies for smart interventions from below?

We invite artists, managers, designers, computer engineers, cultural
workers, internet entrepreneurs, educators, market strategists, squatters,
policy makers and anyone else interested in forging new ways and means for

creative survival, to join us on 20-21 November at Trouw in Amsterdam
