Nancy Schwartzman (@fancynancynyc), a filmmaker, gender-based violence activist, and creator of the Circle of 6 mobile app, is presenting at OKFestival 2014 on the problem of participation. Nancy, along with co-facilitators Linda Raftree and Lina Srivastava, are working to bridge the world of Open Knowledge with the everyday realities of the non-profit and activist worlds in which they work. Their presentation will work with participants to deepen the meanings of “open” and “access” to start working toward a more inclusive open knowledge movement.
In this mini-interview, Nancy explains the The Problem with Participation. Give a listen and I encourage you to attend their event! I’m especially excited to learn about the ways they will help make open knowledge more accessible – this has been an ongoing theme of The OKCast interviews.
