Join us for 6 afternoon sessions of Openlab Groningen! The Openlab is a workspace equipped with 6 workstations running a wide variety of open source software for artists and designers. The goal of the lab is to kick start a community in Groningen that brings together local artists/designers/programmers that work with or are interested to work with open source software.

Special session 13th of March: Dave Griffiths’ crash course Fluxus!!!

The lab in Groningen will kick off with the 3 day workshop ‘hello process’. After the workshop the lab will be open for 3 weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 14.00 until 18.00. The lab is open to everyone interested in making, researching, exchanging, learning or simply working, having a (lot of) coffee and a chat. Permanent inhabitants of the lab: ‘hello process’ artists Aymeric Mansoux and Marloes de Valk from digital art collective GOTO10.

Openlab Groningen will be the third European Openlab. The first Openlab started 3 years ago in London. The lab organises performances, exhibitions and meetings. The project stimulates the use of open source software through the organisation of events. The second lab in existence is Openlab Glasgow. It started a year ago, and is a collective that is open to artists who are interested in the use of technology within their arts practice. The group is based on the sharing and exchange of skills, collaborative projects and the exchange of ideas.
