OUT OF CONTROL :: POWER TO TRANSFORM, POWER TO CREATE
For the KRAX Meeting 2009 we want to continue with this collective questioning, guided by several concepts of the social processes and relations, as autonomy, power-to, self-institution, commons...
We know the ways we have of acting: multiple, heterogenous, experimental, proposing alternatives... We also know the formats of creation, production, management, communication of knowledge, our forms of free cooperation. Now, and especially in these restless times, we want to ask on the capacity of transformation of that “diffuse power” that we own, how to open and multiply the power of the critical social networks, how to exceed the critic and go beyond it, how to empower the diverse citizen proposals, that power-to that already exists and that is outlined from different cracks and different contexts, how to make that latent power manifest...

AUTONOMY IN THE CITY
For the second time, City Mine(d) is organising the KRAX Conference, a meeting between creative ideas in Barcelona and other cities, from April 23 to 26, 2008. This year we are focusing on urban autonomous cultural spaces - public spaces that support the creativity of a city’s residents, and generate debates about the way the city is managed. These are autonomous cultural production initiatives based on new models of (self)management and a coherent discourse in response to urban changes. There’s a need for political institutions to get to know and recognize these spaces and the value and richness they add to the city.
This year, the KRAX Conference brings together experiences of autonomous spaces that produce culture and citizenship. We want to show the importance of these spaces that allow true participation, alternatives and citizen intervention.

SOCIAL CREATIVITY IN URBAN CONFLICTS
The KRAX Conference is the first meeting of different groups active in areas of various cities in the process of urban transformation. We focus on three urban conflicts in Barcelona and their creative answers (Plaça Lesseps, Barceloneta and Raval), and we invite similar groups in other cities (Seville, Tokyo, Brussels, Mostar, London, Caracas, Malaga, Buenos Aires…) to participate. These groups will learn of their experiences through reflection, organisation, and action. The meeting is an exchange and discussion about the importance and necessity of social creativity in the process of city transformation.
The itinerary for the KRAX Conference consists of debates, workshops, presentations given by the invited groups, guided visits of the areas, meetings with local civic groups, and the Documentation Center (the KRAX Zone), which contains the material gathered throughout the investigation.
