什么是谷仓聚会

"谷仓聚会"并不是真的去谷仓里面开 party,这个名词来自 Barnraising 的英文翻译 (请建议我们更好的中文名称),我们像共同建造一座谷仓那样,通过劳动和合作共同完成一件事情。从2012年以来已经在美国举办过13次 Barnraising 了,这次将是第一次在中国举办。

在聚会中,参与者彼此分享在地科技实践,想探讨的议题,自己的故事等等。聚会并没有一个既定议程,第一天的头两个小时,所有参会者通过“开放空间”的方法一起制定想要交流和讨论的内容。这样来确保2天的安排,是在场的人想参与讨论的。同时间段内,一般会有很多个议题同时发生,有些是讨论,有些是需要动手制作完成的,有些是需要去到野外实践的。无论在哪儿,都要遵守“行为守则”,这是为了让每个人都能最好的被尊重。一般来说,在聚会中你能:

  • 从其他角度更好的理解你所关心的事情;
  • 通过面对面的合作和交流,结交朋友,加强原有的关系;
  • 更好的理解本地环境和健康议题(很可能是通过田野调查);
  • 制作或者改装科学设备,获取数据进行分析;
  • 交换各地的倡导策略;
  • 学习如何和全球社群协作。

谁会来

作为一个“聚会”而不是一个“会议”,我们没有任何环节是嘉宾演讲或者演示实验,尽管有的讨论会有人想多讲一点,有的工作坊可能有人来做带领,这都很正常。我们希望每个人都是抱着自我表达、协作和贡献的心态来,希望每个人带着想要解决的问题来,而非来驻足围观一个新奇的东西。

目前的预计是,我们主要的参与者会来自 Public Lab 社群,开放科学硬件大会社群(Gathering for Open Source Hardware),长洲岛本地生态和农业社群,广州开源科技社群,科学家和研究科技的社会学者,珠三角的创客,社会运动者,环保行动者,艺术家,科普和教育工作者等等。

基于场地和组织能力的限制,理想的参会人数在40人左右。如果不得以需要筛选的话,将会平衡性别,年龄和职业等来保证参与者的多元。

主题:土地与社群

我们和居住的土地有什么联系?我们对本地的发展和规划有决定权吗?我们还有“在地科技”吗?有什么方法帮我们更好地理解和应对本地的环境议题?面对下一代,我们该怎样传达什么是科技?基于不同地理关系构建的社群有什么特点,又有什么共同的诉求?科技如何在本地社群中发展和共享?社群能否能通过数据和研究自己定义问题?科技又能怎么直接帮助社群解决问题?

在科技全球化的今天,已经很难看到从本地需求和视角出发的科技探索。尽管在食物和建筑上还有些微痕迹,但小到日常用品,大到工业制造,我们越来越多的依赖于统一的理论和实践。在享受巨大便利的同时,社群的消失,土地的疏离,环境危机等等都让我们反思有没有更好的科技发展路径。

而选择这个主题很大原因也是因为聚会地点是在长洲岛。这是距离广州市区不远,土地为集体所有,很多岛民仍以务农为生。这样的乡村属性吸引了很多广州从事环保、可持续生活、另类教育的朋友来岛上长期生活居住。深井村本身也有浓厚的社群氛围,希望所有外地的朋友都能在开会期间感受到这一点。

工作组

谷仓聚会没有总管,它的发生和过程取决于每个人的努力,请自愿报名参加活动组来贡献你的力量。

  • 工具设备组:帮助统计参会者携带的各种工具设备,这些设备可能用于环境调查,科学分析,教学,工作坊等

About this event

What is a Barnraising?

Barnraisings (or in Chinese "谷仓聚会") are open to the public and with an emphasis on "doing stuff together." At these events, people come together to exchange field-tested technical knowledge and and share stories in person. There have been 13 Barnraisings in the United States since 2012, this will be the first Barnraising in China!

The event does not have an established agenda. On the first morning of the event, we make our own schedule using an "Open Space Technology" approach; this ensures that the agenda speaks directly to the interests of the people present. There are usually several activities happening at the same time at Barnraisings, some are discussions, some are hands-on, and some go into the field to practice. Wherever you are, participants follow the Code of Conduct in order to exercise respect and maintain a safe space for everyone to participate.

Generally, in a Barnraising, participants work to:

  • Learn about issues and share with others from different places,
  • Make friends and strengthen the relationship through face-to-face work and exchanges,
  • Better understand the local environment and health through hands on exploration,
  • Produce or modify scientific equipment and gather data,
  • Learn how to collaborate with the global community.

Who will come

At Barnraising events, everyone comes with the opportunity to share and learn from others, and the event provides a space to share and collaborate in many ways. We anticipate participants will come from the Public Lab community, the Gathering for Open Science Hardware, the local ecological and agricultural community of Changzhou Island, the Guangzhou Open Source Technology Community, and makers in the Pearl River Delta and more. Based on the limitations of venue and organizational capabilities, the ideal number of participants is around 40.

About the Theme: Land and Community

What is the connection between us and the land we live on? Do we have the power to decide on local development and planning? Do we still have "in-place technology"? Is there any way to help us better understand and respond to local environmental questions? How do we communicate technology in the face of the next generation? What are the characteristics of the community based on different geographical relationships, and what are the common demands? How does technology developed and shared in the local community? Can the community define the problem itself through data and research? How can technology directly help the community solve problems?

In today's globalized technology, it is difficult to see technological exploration from local needs and perspectives. Although there are some traces in food and architecture, ranging from everyday items to industrial manufacturing, we are increasingly relying on unified theories and practices. While enjoying great convenience, we are also experiencing the disappearance of the community, the alienation of the land, and environmental crisis. All this allows us to reflect on whether there is a better path for scientific and technological development.

The reason for choosing this theme is because the meeting place is on Changzhou Island. This is not far from the urban area of ​​Guangzhou, the land is collectively owned, and many islanders still make a living from farming. Such rural attributes have attracted many friends from Guangzhou who are engaged in environmental protection, sustainable living, and alternative education. Shenjing village has a strong community atmosphere and hopes that all friends from other places will feel this during the meeting.
