Virtueel Platform invites you to attend the international conference 
Cultuur 2.0. The conference examines the impact of a series of 
developments known commonly as Web 2.0, including sharing, ranking, 
rating, collective intelligence, the wisdom & the dumbness of crowds, 
empowering software, social software, community applications.

The conference brings together the cultural sector and the online and 
ICT world to share, develop and learn to use knowledge, ideas and 
technology. Will a Web 2.0 approach really bring about new kinds of 
cultural content or is this merely a question of a temporary hype?

Cultuur 2.0 is made up of two days. The first takes the form! of a se 
minar, in which the Web 2.0 way of thinking is taken apart, 
questioned and applied to the current cultural climate and policy 
development. To assist us on this journey will be international 
speakers including Charles Leadbeater 
(http://www.charlesleadbeater.net), author of the forthcoming 'We 
Think, the power of mass creativity', Internet pioneer Bob Stumpel 
(http://www.result.com), Internet entrepreneur Boris Veldhuijzen van 
Zanten (http://www.fleck.com) and Andrew Keen 
(http://www.aftertv.com) who will be joining in via 'video 
conversation'. In addition a number of ministers from the former 
'Kabinet Online' will debate on Professional versus Amateur 

The second day of the Cultuur 2.0 conference on Thursday 31st of May 
will be held in the form of a LAb.

In every Scenario LAb representatives of Web 2.0 and the Art/Cultural 
sector will collide, work together, learn or maybe even melt together 
as one.
The scenarios are: 'Canon 2.0' with the Rijksmuseum as a stakeholder, 
'Broadcasting 2.0' with the VPRO, 'Funds 2.0' with Digital Pioneers, 
and 'Film 2.0' with NFTVM. In addition there will also be an open 
Scenario:'Lab 2.! 0©—' lead by Willem Velthoven (Mediamatic). Guests 
for this day are requested by invitation only.

A small exhibition has been put together showing examples of Cultuur 
2.0 applications and cross-overs that coincide with the conference.
