WIKITOPIA is a festival on collaborative Futures initiated by Videotage in 2010 in Hong Kong. Wikitopia aims to facilitate various concepts in the expanded Free Culture movement such as knowledge -sharing, crowd-sourcing creativity, technology-driven social interventions and information arts. Sharing the impulse of the open source movement that grows from the technological world, Wikitopia comes out from the creative realm and envisions a collaborative utopia that can be built and shared. Together with academics, professionals, amateurs, DIY-doers and makers, we explore new possibilities in all sectors and demand collaboration across platforms to revolutionize the way we create, work and live.
