WOMEX – the World Music Expo – took place for the first time in 1994 and has developed into one of the largest conferences in the global music scene. As music moves not only analogically but also digitally, WOMEX is for the first time a partner of the re: publica and will accompany us in the re: connecting Europe to Dublin and Thessaloniki. Here, you will learn about the role music plays in the digital age.
Without our media partners, the re:publica wouldn’t be the unique event that is. The same goes for our second edition – re:publica Dublin 2017. That’s why we’d like to take the time to present rabble as our media partner.
We’re teaming up with a number of different media partners again for the tenth re:publica. Now already in the third round of our series, we introduce the next three seasoned publications for the #rpTEN.
- Politics & Society-The Panama Papers not only shed light onto a secretive system of tax havens and hidden money, but also sparked a debate about how a leak of this size and scope should be reported on. Even before a public relations crisis broke out for politicians using the services of Mossack Fonseca, strong sentiments of scepticism and criticism emerged about the work of the ICIJ and publishing outlets. Could the treatment of the data be biased? Why was Putin featured prominently in the documents while US politicians were absent? Should the 2,7 Terabyte even be published altogether?
In the age of digital media, where every user is also broadcaster, the means of publication themselves quickly turn into a topic of hot debate. Which practical ethics should whistleblowing and journalism apply today to ensure that the public is served and informed best? How should investigative reporters react to the feedback of its readers? And how can we make sure a leak’s revelations don’t get lost along the way?
- Business & Innovation-New ways of thinking and creative applications of technology innovation, as a set of genes, are being planted into various fields in China. They provide a new lens to see and think about the reshaping of many industries, and corresponding influences over city, society, economy, and environment – higher efficiency, more added-value, upgraded consumption led by new products & services, etc.
Media partners have been essential to all past re:publicas – and #rpTEN is no exception. We're proud to present our next four awesome partners.
re:publica wouldn't be what it is today without our awesome media partners and our 10th edition is no different. Today, we're proud to be present the first three partner organisations.
