About this call

Medialab-Prado publishes a call for all those interested in participating in Solid Interfaces and Urban Games: Digitals games in the Public Space workshop as a collaborator in one of the workgroups that will develop the selected projects.

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.

As it is specified in the rules, 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.

The workshop runs full time from July 1 to 7, 2013.

If you are interested, fill the FORM below and send it before July 1, 2013 (see guidelines below).

If you have any questions, please check our frequently asked questions (faq) or write to talleres(at)


Appointment of participants in the workshop
