Converging Pathways to New Knowledge is a LabforCulture initiative considering the future of knowledge building and knowledge sharing within a new digital paradigm.

The project has three interconnected stages:

* a series of three online debates, involving invited experts and the LabforCulture community discussing and commenting on knowledge production, knowledge sharing and regulation
* a one day roundtable in Göteborg on July 28 will bring together foundations, governments and cultural organizations and will coincide with the conference of the Swedish presidency, Promoting a Creative Generation
* a reflection document, produced in collaboration with Kennisland which will contain the outcomes of the online debates, and the roundtable reflection to be launched at the Cultural Forum in Brussels at the end of September

You are invited to participate in the three online debates:

7th July, 16:00-17:30 CET
Knowledge building in the 21st century
8th July, 16:00-17:30 CET
The collective: the amateur and the expert
13th July 11:00-12:30 CET
Regulation: legislation

Some questions that will be asked are; where do cultural operators fit in to the new 'digital picture', what does it mean for artists and what are the burning issues that should be addressed by policy makers to support this cultural shift?
