You’ve heard us talking about it – Popspoken’s second event is arriving in less than a day! Overtime #2 is happening on Thursday, 21st April 2016 at the second floor of CATO, the mod Asian restaurant and bar located along South Beach Road. Come join us for some mid-week inspiration and mid-week spirits.
> Open source (n);
a public endeavour; liberty from capitalistic constructs, collaboration with the community; sympathy for the system; without conditions of discrimination, profit or resistance; hero; villain.
We took your feedback from Overtime #1 and worked on a few things. In this second event by Popspoken, we conducted a week-long Open Call for artists to submit their works based on the theme of “open source”.
Rather poetically, Overtime #2 will fall on the same day that the World Digital Library, a project of the U.S. Library of Congress, was formed eleven years ago back in 2005. With the help and support of UNESCO and libraries, museums, and archives around the world, the creation of the WDL set the stage for freedom of information on the Internet.
Today, the WDL makes available on the Internet, free of charge and in multilingual format, significant primary materials from all countries and cultures.
But for each document that is made free for public viewing, there are plenty more that are kept locked away. Mirroring this sharing and excluding of information and ideas are five artists, each with their own take of the dichotomies between what is seen and what isn’t to showcase their works.
Andre Frois, freelance writer and Popspoken curator, will be moderating a live interview with artists from 7:30PM, which will go live on Popspoken’s Periscope (@popspoken). Send in your questions and comments via Twitter using the hashtag #PSOvertime.
Still need some convincing? Music throughout the night will be provided by DJ A:SHE, and CATO is offering a too good to be true 1-for-1 deal from 7PM to 9PM: Oysters are going for just $1 with any purchase of food or drink!
So join us this Thursday for Overtime #2 – it’s time to claim back your overtime.
