Of Source is a community facing social practice research project. The initial purpose was to further develop opportunities and applications for Open Source methodologies in the participatory third sector. However as the research grew, and partially in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, it has developed into a wider conversation around licencing, attribution and ownership in arts engagement. Data on the creative third sector is gathered through interviews, workshops and practical research. Of Source sees open publishing as a step towards social justice, one which can have a profound impact on the participatory arts. The project is funded until August 2021 and the outcomes of the research will be framed around tools, training and case studies which support artists and practitioners to develop their own work. The website is the touch point for the work and includes resources, interviews and data from the research. Find it Here
