Your 20 Sources and 20 People for this Year 2020
2

This OPENBLOG 2020 theme is for all MEMEFEST MEMBERS to freely participate in.

The idea is to help each other on MEMEFEST get to know and understand what you represent in 2020 on MEMEFEST. What identity you have and through this, knowledge can be shared and collaboration may form between people that you may never have considered talking to or collaborating with.

Discovering similar interests with each other or gaining new knowledge and facts, we can grow in many ways in 2020 on MEMEFEST.

What to do?

The 20 sources and 20 people can be from your vast knowledge that you have accumulated over your lifetime so far or from the last 2 years or 5 years for example. It’s your choice how much you want to share.

Make a list of 20 sources that you feel comfortable sharing that represents you in 2020 on MEMEFEST. Sources can be from books, videos, official reports, journal articles, images, maps, music, interviews, doctoral theses, newspapers, online documents, etc.

And / Or

Make a list of 20 people, current and/or from history, that you think are important or need to be remembered or should be known of today! Who do you admire? Who are your heroes?

These 20 sources and 20 people can be based on a single interest and theme or mixed with lots of interests and themes.

When to post your blog?

Because this OPENBLOG 2020 theme can become extremely detailed and in depth, try not to rush it, take your time and make something you are proud of sharing on MEMEFEST.

Also aim to post your blog in one month after first discovering and reading this so it’s like friendly pressure to not get lazy or forget about it.

And your MEMEFEST comrades can join forces and make a collaborative 2020 list if you don’t want to do it alone!

Stay fresh!

Like this blog or comment on this blog to help your comrades and new and old members discover it.

The quotes below are from my recent article called Creativity published 2 July 2014. Most of the quotes below are about CollaboNation by Jess Bush which I am trying to give people the opportunity to know more about it. Read the full article at Systems Thinking Designer on Wordpress here is the link: http://systemsthinkingdesigner.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/creativity-3/

"I have a utopian dream that humanity one day uses higher forms of value systems that replace money." Stephen Hass 2014

"To a large extent the creation of money is an unsustainable practice and I see creativity as a potential to replace money." Stephen Hass 2014

"CollaboNation movement to me appears to be the beginning of representing a vast amount of systems for the power of creativity and strength of artistic expression; that exclude the systemic dimensions of the money value systems that threaten the integrity of creativity and art practice." Stephen Hass 2014

"CollaboNation brings anybody and everybody together on a social level by giving a public platform for people to participate in their own art and creative process, for free. CollaboNation is truly a social art experiment aiming to achieve positive outcomes for all people involved and to those who view it as well. The free process of creating art by using collaboration creativity per individual strengthens as the power of connectivity is tested in public spaces, as a transience public collaborative artwork is created." Stephen Hass 2014

"CollaboNation makes a mutual conversation space and platform for different creative levels and personalities. A passion for creativity and art is not necessary for CollaboNation to work effectively. The mutual connection of creativity that we all have is what makes CollaboNation effective. Then sharing our creativity through CollaboNation and creating a single but multi facet artwork by collaborating with the person next to you or the person who was there just 5 minutes ago builds up layers of communication and experiences. Conversation comes naturally when people find a connection to each other or when someone needs help and guidance." Stephen Hass 2014

"CollaboNation is a mighty positive energy for cultural and social change for people, communities, society and systems." Stephen Hass 2014

"CollaboNation and Jess Bush is a breath of fresh air and writing a few sentences, as a description would not give this movement and artist justice." Stephen Hass 2014

"Please don’t let your creativity be squashed! It’s a beautiful thing to have." Jess Bush 2014.

I am really happy I am able to contribute and collaborate in Memefest now with great enthusiasm. I did not have enough enthusiasm back in 2012 and 2013 to be part of Memefest much. Peace
