The event will provide materials and infrastructure necessary for the development of its selected proposals. Authors of the selected proposals that on’t live in Belo Horizonte will also get traveling tickets and lodging to participate of the two weeks workshop - to one member, in case the proposal is made by a group. The developing teams will be formed by volunteer collaborators, enrolled through a posterior international call, in an open and nterdisciplinary methodology of exchange.

Interactivos?’10 BH: High End Low Tech will also include a seminar with the participation of the instructors and invited collaborators, as a way to present and discuss different approaches about the proposed theme. At the end of the production workshop, the achieved results will be shown in a one week exhibition, enabling its access to the public.
Conceived by the Spanish lab Medialab-Prado, the model for Interactivos? events has been replicated in different places around the world since 2006, forming a networked platform of initiatives related to this field. André Mintz, collaborador at Interactivos?'08 Lima: Magic and Technology workshop, sets up this workshop-seminar in Brazil for the first time in the country.
