The role of the collaborator is crucial in the Medialab-Prado's workshops' statement and development process, as these workshops are constituted as a horizontal collaborative work environment, knowledge interchange and theoretical-practical training among teachers, authors and collaborators.

Collaborators can join any of the developing teams that will carry out the selected proposals, depending on their particular interests and skills, thus contributing with their knowledge and skills and at the same time learning from the other group members and from the leading tutors: Mar Canet, Antonin Fourneau, and Abelardo Gil-Fournier. According to the open call guidelines, collaborators' names will be acknowledged in the final prototypes. Medialab-Prado can issue a diploma to collaborators after completing the workshop.

Work grous will start to set up through the FORUM, where interested people can contact authors and other collaborators. Following the presentation of projects on the first day of the workshop (Thursday, January 21, 2010), work groups will be finally defined.

During the first part of the workshop (January 21 - 24, 2010) teams will start developing the prototypes. Afterwards, we encourage teams to continue working in an independent way, so once they get to the second part (February 4 - 7, 2010) they will be closer to finish them.

If you wish to take part in a work group, please fill in the form below before January 20, 2010.
