Beijing's Creative Industries: Counter-Mappings and Other Expressions

edited/produced by Bert de Muynck, Mónica Carriço, Ned Rossiter in collaboration with Urban China

deadline for material: Friday, 31 August

Based on material generated out of the orgnets research on creative industries in Beijing, we are producing a beta version magazine in collaboration with Urban China.

Orgnets is interested in alternative publishing models, particularly for online publishing. We consider the occasion of this magazine as one which facilitates further collaboration between Orgnets and Urban China.

To this end, we are seeking content (images, text) from participants and list subscribers in the next 2 weeks. Content already exists in discussions and postings in the list archives, which we will mine, along with material developed out of fieldtrips and info-mapping by Luka Frelih and others (19-31 July).

Additional material can be posted to the list, uploaded on the website, or mailed to either Bert, Mónica or Ned.

A magazine production workshop will occur at the Beijing office of Urban China next to the One Way Street Library and MIMA cafe.
