V2_ invites you to participate in CREATIVITY 2.0, an extra-
territorial Tangent_Event taking place in Rotterdam connecting to the
2nd Chinese Bloggers Conference, in Hangzhou China October 28/29.
Featuring special guest Régine Debatty in
Rotterdam and cultural bloggers Zhang Qing and Gino Yu in Hangzhou,
CREATIVITY 2.0 will bring together leading independent writers and
curators to discuss the rise of the blog as an open medium of
_expression in establishing and supporting unrestricted forms of
dialogue and community, both in the sense of cultural enterprise and
artistic practice.

Recently, and during the past year in particular, it has become
increasingly popular to use the new tools and expanded online
facilities that weblogs provide in order to create new social
identities, define cultural practices and create active communities
beyond the physical constraints of urban or national structures. This
is especially the case in countries such as the People’s Republic of
China in which a new ‘middle landscape?of an increasingly affluent
and mobile citizenry has zealously and enthusiastically attuned to
the latest in global technology and telecommunications. Forming a
significant part of the ‘Web 2.0?phenomenon Blogs pick up the faded
myth of the Internet as a user generated space of exchange with both
cultural and commercial repercussions.

Associated online tools and services such as, YouTube, Biku, Flickr
and del.icio.us augment the omnipresence of Blogs into complex global
communities of users linked via an infinite number of personal
backgrounds, interests and goals and create new forms of social,
cultural, artistic and economic networks. In areas where traditional
forms of monitoring and control of information is pervasive the
complexity and diversity of blogging’s reach drives the creation of
new platforms and forms of _expression. Blogs brought to life by
anyone anytime are now creating a blogosphere rapidly replacing
traditional information structures by unifying in cross-media
frameworks the same mechanisms of text and visual tagging, cross-
referencing of information, and opinion gathering established with
the Internet over a decade ago. But how do these structures
originate, who do they serve, and how are the bloggers covered by
‘traditional?or local media? Beyond global entertainment and free-
for-all journalism can Blogs instill new cultural identities and open
up new zones of dialogue and critique? Can they lead to cultural and
artistic production per se, or drown in parody and hasty mash-ups
during their authors?5 minute bursts of fame?

CREATIVITY 2.0 links the worlds of blogging between Europe, Asia and
beyond in a live and online dialogue hosting players including Régine
Debatty, Zhang Qing, Gino Yu, aaajiao and Kuang Huang who are active
in defining and sharpening both active art communities and
establishing new contexts for transnational cultural dialogue.

CREATIVITY 2.0 will be moderated in Rotterdam by V2_ program curator
Stephen Kovats, and in Hangzhou by writer and cultural theorist Tian
Sun.

The event will be streamed live using REAL MEDIA and IRC moderated
online by Berlin based independent curator Vera Tollmann. The stream
