Crowdfunding for Artists in Australia
In April 2012 Institutes Director Thomas Schildhauer visited the ECU Centre for Innovative Practice in Perth, Australia, to discuss recent developments in the area of „Internet-enabled Innovation“.
Invited by Dr Paul Jackson, an experienced IT practitioner and senior lecturer at the Edith Cowan School of Management, Professor Schildhauer held lectures on new ways of doing business for artists and used the occasion to speak about the developement of ‘crowdsourcing’ platforms and websites. During his lectures Professor Schildhauer illustrated the function of mass collaboration and ways of how brands can get involved within these.
Besides teaching artists and musicians on strategies behind mass-collaboration platforms, Thomas Schildhauer used his visit in Perth to hold a workshop for urban and rural arts organisations on ‘Internet and the Arts’.
“It was our pleasure to host Professor Schildhauer on his visit” said Dr Paul Jackson. “It is a real privilege to have someone of his calibre talk to us about this subject which has so many implications for marketing, operations, human resources, financing and indeed our social fabric. We have explored many opportunities for collaboration, both with the University of the Arts and the Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin. It’s very exciting.”

Whether civil society, politics or science – everyone seems to agree that the New Twenties will be characterised by digitalisation. But what about the tension of digital ethics? How do we create a digital transformation involving society as a whole, including people who either do not have the financial means or the necessary know-how to benefit from digitalisation? And what do these comprehensive changes in our actions mean for democracy? In this dossier we want to address these questions and offer food for thought on how we can use digitalisation for the common good.
