Broadcasting from Babylon, CCP #3: Business as Art, with Melanie Rieback

From January – March 2019, Netwerk Democratie co-organises Broadcasting From Babylon, a public programme series focusing on intersectional feminist, queer, and anti-colonial embodied, listening and sounding practices, which are broadcasting from Babylon, Fort EU. Taking place between 21 January – 15 March 2019. The sessions are organised as a DAS Arts Theatre ‘block’, but are free and open to all to attend!

Netwerk Democratie will host seven meetings in collaboration with Framer Framed, every Thursday, on the topic of ‘Citizenship and Cultural Production’. For the third session, don’t miss this special opportunity to join in a workshop with ethical hacker Melanie Rieback.

Thursday 7 February
Workshop Business as Art

Arts and creativity often depend on grants and subsidy schemes for their financing. Are there other ways to finance creatives? Hacker Melanie Rieback will help to set the definition of a business model upside down. According to her, business models can be a tool for activism, for art, and for self-expression. After this workshop your vision of business models will never be the same again.

Melanie Rieback is CEO and co-founder the world’s first non-profit computer security consultancy company. Unlike other cybersecurity companies 90% of the profits of Radically Open Security go to charity and the hackers collective operates on the basis of transparency and open source. Recently, Melanie founded Non Profit Ventures, which teaches entrepreneurs to follow their ideals and do business differently. Previously, Rieback performed RFID security research that attracted worldwide press coverage and won several awards.
