Medialab-Prado and Reverso publishes a call for all those interested in participating in Bodynet - How to make a network of bodies? workshop as collaborator in one of the workgroups that will develop the selected proposals.
The collaborator is basic in the planning and development of the workshops at Medialab-Prado, thus these are conceived as spaces for collaborative work, knowledge exchange and theoretical and practical training. It is an environment in which there is a horizontal relationship among professors, developers and the collaborators.
According to its field of interest, each collaborator can be part of the development team in more than one of the selected proposals bringing his/her knowledge and ideas to the workgroup and, at the same time, learning from the group and the teachers.
The names of the collaborators will appear in the project’s credits. Also, Medialab-Prado will give a document certifying the participation in the workshop to all the participants that request it.
If you are interested, fill the FORM below and send it before July 23, 2013 (see guidelines below).
If you have any questions, please check our frequently asked questions (faq) or write to talleres(at) medialab-prado.es.
