Schedule and Festival Summary Updates OpenCity FreedomFest is a freeform festival celebrating free culture, indy politics and Open Source Software.
It takes place August 20-22 in Winnipeg's Exchange District. It's an uprising and convergence of social innovation, cultural innovation, and technological innovation, celebrating unmediated interaction. OpenCity brings together progressive politics, the arts community, and the Free and Open Source Software community with the common goal of strengthening independent voices and encouraging shareable creativity.
OpenCity FreedomFest was founded in the belief that our Culture is a Commons -- and an important part of what makes us human. If our cultural currency belongs to someone else, we are diminished as human beings.
OpenCity FreedomFest will be featuring indy bands, video art, panel discussions, political soap boxes and more.
