This workshop at Science Gallery is part of Studiolab, a three-year, Europe-wide initiative that merges the artist studio with the research lab. Funded by the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme in 2011, Studiolab is a network that provides a platform for creative projects that bridge divides between science, art and design.

A maximum of six or seven projects will be accepted for production in the two-week workshop in July 2012 during the Hack the City exhibition.

The selected projects will be developed with the aid of a large group of collaborators and assistants, and will receive further support from advisors, including Tim Redfern, Carolina García Cataño, and John Lynch with Teresa Dillon (Hack the City's curator).

The open call is aimed at designers, artists, engineers, sociologists, architects, city planners, teachers, programmers, psychologists, journalists, environmentalists, or any other person interested in the theme of this call.

Proposals may be presented by individuals or groups. Each participant or team may present as many projects as they wish.

Selected projects must be open to the participation of other interested collaborators, who will be able to contribute to the production of the pieces during the development of the workshop.

There are two levels of involvement with the workshop:

• Level 1 - as a project leader, and
• Level 2 - as a collaborator in any one of the selected projects.

Once the projects have been selected, the second step in the process will involve a new call for those people who would like to participate in the projects' production as a collaborator. The call for collaborators will be open from June 1st to July 5th 2012 on the Medialab-Prado's website.

Dates & Deadlines:

• Open Call: April 19 - May 20, 2012
• Selection of proposals: May 21 - 27, 2012
• Call for collaborators: June 1 - July 5, 2012
• Development of projects (workshop): July 11 - July 26, 2012
• Exhibition of prototypes: July 27 - September 7, 2012
