Sustainable Models for Shared Culture - Case Studies and Policy Issues

The FCForum has recently published a report entitled "Sustainable Models for Shared Culture. Case Studies and Policy Issues" which, as suggested by its subtitle, aims at "supporting experiences, collecting challenges, sharing skills and building sustainable models for the cultural sector in the digital era".
This work has been written collaboratively by CONSERVAS/Xnet, Stichting Kennisland, World-Information Institute and the National Hellenic Research Foundation Documentation Centre (NHRF/EKT).


Sustainable Models for Shared Culture - Case Studies and Policy Issues

The publication argues that although the entertainment industry, governments and international agencies aim to control the distribution channels of contents and claim that these are the only possible models to approach culture, the reality is that a "free culture" has risen and helped to bridge the gap between society’s needs and the need to generate revenue streams for content creators. The report presents examples of this kind of solutions and includes a series of recommendations for this "free culture" to develop.
