[INVITATION LINK] Preserving Western Balkans

Hi everyone,

On October 15, 16, 17, 18, the ‘Preserving Western Balkans’ Festival is organized, a four-day event with activities dedicated to Open Source platforms, neglected architecture, collective architectural memory of two cities, Tirana and Pristina. The festival will be organized through presentations, workshops, videos of Archi-tours in these cities and interviews. Participants from both countries will have the opportunity to learn about the architecture and urban development of the other city and contribute to the platforms

as an open source platform for documenting the common, forgotten and neglected architectural assets of these cities, which unfortunately we are losing day by day.

More about the festival’s daily program can be found here: https://wiki.openlabs.cc/faqja/Preserving_Western_Balkans

For anyone interested in being part of the event and contributing to these shared documentation platforms, the registration link is here: https://registration.preservingwb.city/

This project is organized by Open Labs in partnership with IPKO Foundation and is supported by RYCO.

During the event there have been some really nice workshops, talks and documentaries and I think it is a great opportunity to upload these materials on Peertube instead of YouTube and expose more people to more decentralized video platforms than the proprietary ones that unfortunately are massively used.
About Peertube from this article:

PeerTube is a free and open-source, decentralized, federated video platform powered by ActivityPub and WebTorrent, that uses peer-to-peer technology to reduce load on individual servers when viewing videos.
Started in 2015 by a programmer known as Chocobozzz, development of PeerTube is now supported by the French non-profit Framasoft. The aim is to provide an alternative to centralized platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion.
