Call for collaborations in the advanced workshop Interactivos?'12 Ljubljana: Obsolete Technologies of the Future, that takes place in September 5 - 15 in Ljudmila, Ljubljana (Slovenia).
Collaborators will participate in the production of selected projects that will rethink the qualities of outdated technology and making way for a long-term, sustainable usage of technology in our environment in the decades to come.
Deadline: August 31, 2012
Ljudmila, in collaboration with Swiss Mechatronic Art Society of Zurich, and Medialab-Prado publish a call for all those interested in participating in Interactivos?'12 Ljubljana: Obsolete Technologies of the Future 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, Ljudmila and Medialab-Prado will give a document certifying the participation in the workshop to all the participants that request it.
If you are interested, submit the form below before August 26, 2012 (see guidelines below).
If you have any questions, please check our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) or write to delavnica[at]ljudmila.org
There is no selection process for collaborators; all received applications will be accepted until capacity is filled. Once you have submitted your form, you will receive an automatic confirmation informing you that your data has been successfully received. This is your confirmation that you are able to take part in the workshop. However, please note that being allocated a place as a collaborator on the workshop, does not ensure that you will have accommodation in Ljubljana (please see below).
For participants that reside outside of Ljubljana, the organization will provide accommodation at Sax Youth Hostel for a limited number of collaborators during the dates of the celebration of the workshop from September 4 through 16 (maximum stay).Ljudmila and Medialab-Prado will not cover travelling or other expenses during the stay.
The Interactivos?'12 forum will enable advisors, developers, and collaborators to begin working before the start of the workshop. The workshop participants will be able to contact the project’s developers and all the collaborators and raise questions, make comments and discuss other forms of collaborations. Final working groups will be established during the Project’s initial presentation on the workshop's first day.
