As part of the Europa Cinemas event that took place here in Paris this weekend, I watched a really interesting talk by David Orlic, Creative Director and Co Founder of Volontaire. The discussion was based around a project they developed for the Swedish Institute and Visit Sweden entitled Curators of Sweden.
For those who haven't heard about it, the project saw Sweden become the first country in the world to let go of an official communication channel and hand it over to its citizens. Every week, someone in Sweden became @Sweden and therefore, the sole ruler of the country's official Twitter account. The project trended on Twitter worldwide and, after some controversial comments, gained worldwide media coverage.
Having gained worldwide media coverage, Curators of Sweden has since inspired the launch of many similar projects as well as the term Rotation Creation.
According to Wikipedia:
Rotation Curation, also #RotationCuration, is a social media concept where official and unofficial projects, countries, cities, companies, cultural, and, or other types of groups rotate their spokespersons, curators, every week.
So, has anyone here participated in such a project with a concept of a rotating spokesperson or curator on any level? If so, how did it work out? Is there any scope to develop this idea in a sound design / recording context? We've seen various crowd sourcing projects but I'm wondering how interesting it'd be to try something like this?
Any ideas / thoughts..?
