Project description:

The Ecumenic Creative Operations (https://ecumenic.github.io) is developing an extense open-source research of the laic and faith-inspired creative industry ecosystem (https://bit.do/ecumenic-ecosystem). With its community of agents and scenario indicators data they look after improving its production reliability engineering technologies, regenerativity ecology, sustainable economy, and ecumenical laic-interfaith diplomacy development. From the analysis of this information, as presented in their project (https://bit.do/ecumenic-project) they global charters compliance (https://bit.do/ecumenic-compliance), dignified inclusivity accessibility code of conduct (https://bit.do/ecumenic-conduct) collaboration guidelines (https://bit.do/ecumenic-collaboration), contract template (https://bit.do/ecumenic-contract). These and other materials (https://github.com/ecumenic/project) are available for use from any faith-inspired or laic cultural development organizations under the Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-SA-4.1 license

Impact reached:

The enterprise open-community is developing a set of data-ethics policies from this research of extreme importance for world community, such as a global standards charters compliance commitment (https://bit.do/ecumenic-compliance), a dignified inclusivity accessibility entrepeneurial code of conduct (https://bit.do/ecumenic-conduct), an open-source devops collaboration guidelines (https://bit.do/ecumenic-collaboration), a fair-trade contract template (https://bit.do/ecumenic-contract), and an open-educational-resource (OER) on total-artwork operatic ecomuseology cultural development artscraft production modular instruction program (https://bit.do/ecumenic-ecomuseology)  which are also available for any peacebuilding compliant faith-inspired or laic cultural development organizations under the Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-SA-4.1 license (https://bit.do/ecumenic-license).

With this we have been able to collaborate with many communities such as craftspeople, seekers gatherings, animals, cinema sets staffs, artistic collectives, theatre and dance companies, archiengineers, indigenous tribes and nations, street marketers, infrastructure developers, rule-of-law settlements, jail population (jailers included), pregnants, plants, midwives, business developers, neurodiverses, psychonauts, scholars, policemen, transqueers, homeless and landless people, civil movements, grafitti crews, legislators, landscapers, semiotic multimedia researchers, cleaners, fablabs, seniors schools, physicians, carers, urban renewal ngo’s, open-software communities, cosmoethicians, broiderers, metarecyclers, independent medias, farmers and herdsmen, street marketers, scientists, sustainable intentional communities, human-rights advocates, research residencists, social bankers, among other euthenic oriented people our whole gratitude.


Techniques/technologies used:

The open data we are sharing with you (https://bit.do/ecumenic-ecosystem) contains a thorough bibliography on the methodology used in the development of the ecosystem report itself.

It was collaboratively edited through three years of presential and online workshops using Riseup Etherpad, Telegram, Whatsapp, Google Docs, and Github.

It was organized, reviewed three times, and diagrammed using GNU/Linux Peppermint OS 6.6. Distribution, Gedit 3.10, Libre Office 4.2, Gimp 2.8, Chromium 65.0, and Freemind 0.84.

What was the hardest part of this project?

The unsurmountable size of the data gathered and the compliance detailment makes it very difficult to be handled without the proper consentment ontological intorperability, so we began to research the WC3 semantic-web and further developments on this path.

The dangers and urgency of the matters involved in its have a very profound negative psychological effect on the gathering of collaborators without the proper mandate, so the vast majority of participators did not commit to the project, which led us to write articles (https://bit.do/ecumenic-articles) to explain its interdisciplinar necessity better, including a research on blockchain, so that we may promote it economically.

I must confess the last times have been very difficult for our works in Brazil due to the increasing religious persecution we’ve been having. I’ve been personally trying to connect to international laic and interfaith community, specially the artistic and academic one, without results. I’ve considered many times giving up, after assaults and threats, without being able to find refuge to foster this work. 

Even if you do not think our book, perhaps for its pedagogical nature, is worth of your award, please help us promoting and sharing its useful technologies. God bless you, yours, and everyone in your paths.

What can others learn from this project?

That data-science must includes humanities and cultural studies so that data-analysis using human collective-intelligence under a holistic compliance reliability engineering ci-cd devops, may develop peacebuilding humanitarian data-ethics policies.
