what is 4rts.in

4rts aims connecting every 'free' (in the sense of free/libre software) technology and arts

A group of activists from diffrent fields on/from/? free software (swathantra) movement join together to study/share knowledge about how software and free technologies are extremely useful into creativity and in this case in particular into arts. Not only the technologies but also licensing, documentation, examples will (are) be shared discussed (advised) Our studies will be on visual, sound and any kind of arts. then the name suggests (4rts - fo(u)r arts) being practically self-explicative

As main location of the project we'll consider India. Amount of population, cultural diversity makes an ideal place to settle.

The group that participates to the project is 'international' and open to new comers, then we can confront different creative situations with different stiumulus. (arrange like: It is an international group of activists with backgrounds in different fields (technological, artistical, and so on))

Some important things (to develop)

  • Only free tech (write)
  • Only shared and sharing things (write)

important: name that our goal is really based on creativity and not 'droven creativity' (as multinationals do)

keywords: arts, free software, gpl3, creativity, society
