Interactivos? is a research and production platform for the creative and educational uses of technology. Its main goal is to expand on the use of electronic and software tools for artists, designers and educators, thus contributing to the development of local communities of cultural producers in this field.
Interactivos? events are a hybrid between a production workshop, a seminar and a showcase. A space for reflection, research, and collaborative work is created, in which proposals selected by an international open call are developed, completed and displayed. The process is open to the public from beginning to end.
In an upstairs studio at mac Birmingham we will create a technical workshop environment in which we will welcome 6 projects to be worked on and developed intensively over a 2 week period. The projects were chosen after an international open call.
These projects will be advised and guided with the help of industry experts and collaborators.
The prototypes developed during these two weeks (16th - 28th June) will then be shown in a two week exhibition at mac Birmingham.
Alongside this we will be running a international seminar on 17th June based around the theme of responsive and immersive future technologies.
There will also be an exhibition of exciting and interactive works in the hub space by the entrance to the building throughout the two week period.
