Citizen Labs (in Portuguese: “Laboratórios de Cidadania”) were introduced at FUTUREPLACES in 2011. They are fast-action, practice-based workshops where experts and citizens converge and mutually benefit from one another’s knowledge. From technical expertise to social engagement, Citizen Labs / Laboratórios de Cidadania address a multitude of media contexts, are free to attend, and the coordinators provide them pro bono. Often the outcomes of the lab inform ongoing research, consolidate themselves in further contexts, and/or get “upgraded” to a permanent FUTUREPLACES project.
The full archive can be accessed here.
Labs for 2017 are listed and linked below.
A sample session of all labs will take place 18 October, 3PM @ UPTEC PINC.
All outcomes will be presented Saturday 21 October starting at 3:30PM @ Passos Manuel.
