View of a workshop at Medialab-Prado

Medialab-Prado publishes a call for all those interested in participating in Open Up 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: Jordi Claramonte, Chandler McWilliams, Casey Reas, and Víctor Viña

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 every day from February  9 through 23 on the following schedule:
Monday to Friday: 10 am to 8 pm
Saturdays: 11 am to 8 pm
Sundays: 11 am to 3 pm


If you are interested, fill the FORM that you will find below and send it before February 8, 2010 (see guidelines below).

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

Appointment of participants in the workshop

Since there is no selection process for collaborators, all received inscriptions will be accepted until capacity is filled. Once you have submitted the form, you will receive an automatic mail confirmation informing that your data has been successfully received, which means that you have already earned participation in the workshop. Having a place as a collaborators doesn't mean necesarily that you have a place at the hostel (please see below).



For residents out of Madrid, Medialab-Prado will cover for the stay of a limited number of participants at the Albergue Juvenil Mejía Lequerica during the dates of the celebration of the workshop. Each space will be assigned by order of inscription. Therefore, signing in as a collaborator does not necessarily guarantee that you have a place in the Hostel. Don’t forget to indicate in the form the dates of your stay (Maximum stay: check-in on February 8 and leaving on February 25), and Medialab-Prado will get in touch with you for a final reservation. The last day to ask for a place is February 4

Medialab-Prado does not cover traveling nor other expenses during the stay.

Attention: no more places available at the Hostel.



Each working team will start its training through Open Up Forum, where the interested participants will be able to contact the project’s authors and all the collaborators and raise a questions, make comments and discuss about other forms of collaborations. Groups will be completed during the Project’s initial presentation on the workshop’s first day.
