Re:Group / In Code We Trust - Exploring models of authorized participation through crowd sourced democracy in the 21st Century.

Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus, an exhibition which examines models of participation and participation as a model in art and activism. Re:Group proposes that with participation now a dominant paradigm, structuring social interaction, art, activism, the architecture of the city, and the economy, we are all integrated into participatory structures whether we want to be or not. The exhibition showcases work that subverts existing systems or envisions new alternatives to the ways in which individuals can take part, or choose not to take part, in social and cultural life.

"In Code We Trust" is the new motto for Government in the 21st century. Across the country, geeks inside and outside of government are developing a new participatory and transparent Federal, State and Municipal governments. Built upon open-source tools, open standards, and best practices, this panel will highlight authorized actors as they practical examples of initiatives from private, public and government sectors.
