Exhibition

“CrowdFinding”: The Empowerment Of The Local Community

Poligon Creative Centre

25.9.–2.10.2015

The exhibition “CROWDFINDING”: THE EMPOWERMENT OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY” in the Impact Hub in Vienna was utterly faithful to the banner of the successful Slovenian crowdfunding campaigns. It straightforwardly outlined the success stories of young designers. Prime examples like the extendable bike mudguard, the wooden pinhole camera, the re-interpreted kilim and the carpentered cell phone loudspeaker highlighted how platforms like Kickstarter and Co. trod alternative paths in financing projects, and how (local) communities can be integrated even at the early stage.
